The question of the development of mechanical stresses in crystals during their growth is investigated. The mechanical stress field is calculated which can be caused by a radially inhomogeneous impurity concentration distribution existing around growth centers. For the case of KCl: Pb crystals it is shown that depending on growth condition these stresses can be very considerable. Die Frage nach der Entstehung von mechanischen Spannungen in Kristallen wahrend ihres Wachstums wird… CONTINUE READING
