Crystal growth laboratory

We prepare high quality bulk single crystals for physics research using a variety of melt and solution growth techniques.

What we do

CoNb2O6: A large crystal of CoNb2O6 grown in the Clarendon image furnace We use our extensive range of furnaces and crystal growth equipment to prepare samples in specific forms suitable for experiments. We perform basic structural, chemical and physical characterisation, and we have the capability to align, cut and polish crystals according to need.

Browse through the list of crystals we have grown, and take a look at some photographs and publications.
