“Bulk Single Crystal Growth of Novel Quantum Materials”
Dr. Zhiqiang Mao
Professor of Physics, Penn State University
Summary: Bulk single crystal growth not only plays vital roles in technological advancement, but also is critical to the discoveries of novel quantum materials, such as topological materials. There are many methods for single crystal growth, including solid state growth, melt growth, solution growth and vapor phase growth. In this presentation, I will first introduce several crystal growth techniques related to the melt and solution growth methods. Then I will discuss general strategies for growing single crystal of novel quantum materials as well as crystal growth mechanisms.
