Abstract:

Research is concerned with the development of techniques for the growth of refractory single crystals by a modified Verneuil technique. An investigation was made of methodsof attaining high temperatures by extracting energy from electrical plasma torches rather than by gaseous combustion which is the established technique. The theoretical considerations and practical efforts relating to the development of a functioning plasma torch are described. Author
