Paper: High pressure laser floating zone furnace

April 22, 2019

Our paper detailing the high pressure floating zone furnace created in our lab was published today in the journal Review of Scientific Instruments.  This furnace is capable of floating zone growth at world leading growth pressures and is the culmination of a multiyear development effort supported by the W. M. Keck Foundation.  The furnace opens up a new frontier for the growth of ultrahigh purity quantum materials preciously inaccessible to the floating zone technique due to their volatility or decomposition at lower pressures.
