Abstract:

Single crystals of over 100 different electronically active materials have been synthesized using a variety of methods, including growth by flame-fusion, flux, melt, gel diffusion, low-temperature solution, vapor, as well as synthesis by ultra-high-pressure techniques. These crystals, including a large number of doped specimens, emphasize oxides, garnets, silicates, ferrites, fluorides, as well as a large variety of other electromagnetic materials. Charts are presented giving summary data on single crystals grown, percentage and kind of dopants, growth methods and apparatus, crystal dimensions and other physical characteristics, primary research interest or use, crystal system, class, space group, and pertinent references. Several of the growth methods and recent Laboratory accomplishments are described. Author
