Crystal Growth SEF
The Crystal Growth shared experimental facility in CMSE is a unique resource available to users within and outside of MIT community. We have optical floating-zone furnaces, top-seeded growth furnaces, 3-zone tube furnace, box furnaces, arc melting furnace and cutting/polishing equipments to satisfy the needs of crystal growth. Facilities for characterization of crystals include SQUID magnetometers and ICP-AES. The project can be arranged as a contract to work or trained researchers to become qualified facility users.
