Crystal growth from solutions under microgravity environment
The growth of large and perfect single crystals are now of considerable interest because of their increasing scientific and industrial importance. Any imperfection in the crystal causes malfunctioning, rapid aging, low reliability and low yield in manufacture. Due to the availability of earth orbiting spaceships, there is a possibility of growing these crystals with high purity. In this review paper, the author discusses mainly the growth of crystals under microgravity conditions (in spaceships) and their basic principles and also their relative merits.
