CRYSTAL GROWTH FURNACES
Rotalab’s crystal growing systems provide the two most important parameters necessary for critical growth: stability and control. Both are necessary to achieve consistency, repeatability and uniformity – the keys to successful crystal growth in the laboratory and in production.
Stability provides the crystal grower with a known and constant environment for demanding crystal growth. Stability assures uniform, tightly defined temperatures and thermal gradients for consistent melts and zone refining. Stability requires well-controlled gaseous or vacuum environments.
Control is achieved through the computer system interface which holds temperatures precisely where they are set and initiates changes quickly and smoothly to new values with minimal overshoot.
