The new Flux Crystal Growth Furnace RFO was constructed, build and delivered to Augsburg University.
The Flux Crystal Growth Furnace is a powerful software-controlled tube furnace, designed for the growth of single crystals from molten fluxes. The furnace can be operated in air, but the process chamber can also be evacuated and filled with argon or nitrogen with a slight overpressure in order to achieve inert atmospheres. The furnace can be operated in any position. For example, it can be turned upside-down in order to separate flux material from single crystals, still maintaining the defined temperature.
