Crystal Growth of Ternary Compound Semiconductors
crystal growth there is a need to understand the relation between
processes in the fluid phase, both liquid and vapor, such as buoyancy
driven convection, the incorporation of impurities, and defects in
the resulting crystal.
Relation between fluid phase processes and the generation of defects
in a grown crystal is an outstanding problem in materials growth.
Studies in microgravity will be compared with modeling and will
be used to optimize ground-based experiments.
