The 2DCC currently possess six Muffle Furnaces with maximum temperatures of 1200 °C that are being utilized for conventional melt growth, flux growth, and solid-state reaction. One of the Muffle Furnace is placed inside the fume hood in which allows us to grow material that contains toxic elements, such as lead and arsenic. Each furnace will accept an ampoule of maximum length up to 15 cm or multiple ampoules with shorter length. Programmatic control allows for multiple segment ramp and dwell temperature profiles.
