Further progress on crystal growth on-line monitoring [Full subscriber]

Abstract A good characterization of the main variables affecting a strike can lead to an improved operation of any type of pan. On-line monitoring of crystal growth performed by ITECA’ new generation of microscopes provides a better knowledge of those variables, which are essential for achieving highest yield and cost effective production of homogeneous crystals. The paper describes and discusses digital microscope operation at different stages of the process (i.e. before seeding, a t the seeding stage and during graining phase). A particular attention must be paid to the location of the microscope onto the pan: it has to be…
