Czochralski Process Video

Lekhanath Poudel took a video of single crystals of CeCu6 being grown from Czochralski Process. A polycrystalline button of CeCu6 is melted by using three stingers in a Tri-arc furnace owned by the Mandrus Group. The rotating seed rod, which in this case is the tungsten rod of 3/8″ diameter, is brought in contact with the melt at the center of the hearth. The seed rod is being pulled in speed ~ 25 mm/hr.
