The Zone Melt Crystal Growth Method (FSZM) has been used to produce polycrystalline Galfenol specimens, Fe81.6Ga18.4, with preferred {100} orientation. This crystal growth technique has advantages over conventional Bridgman methods in that zone rates used were at least an order of magnitude greater; 350 mm/hr versus 2-4 mm/hr. This material had measured… CONTINUE READING
