Abstract
Experimental work is described in this paper demonstrating the feasibility of growing crystals of an incongruently melting compound from its melt, provided that its composition is not far removed from a congruently melting composition. Approximately 60 crystal-growth runs were made from the melt of ammonium dihydrogen orthophosphate (ADP). Crystals of acceptable quality were grown in 10-mm and 25-mm diameters, with pulling rates of 2 mm/h or less and 1 mm/h or less, respectively. Although still rather slow, these growth rates are at least one order of magnitude faster than those obtained in industrial crystal growth from solutions of the same material.
