CURRENT AND RECENT PROJECTS

NEW TECHNIQUES FOR INORGANIC CRYSTAL GROWTH

We have developed apparatus for the growth of crystals by (a) accelerated crucible rotation (ACR) flux growth with an improved flux extraction procedure and (b) traveling-heater growth with ACR. These projects, originally designed for the growth of lead sulfate scintillator crystals for PET, are now dormant because of the uncompetitively high cost of PbSO4 crystals
