Our Levitation Melting Facility KTS, a multifunctional apparatus for alloying and casting of sensitive metallic rods using a levitated melt in a cold crucible, was succesfully delivered and launched at the Paul Scherrer Institute PSI in Villingen, Switzerland. The device is now working in the lab of the Solid State Chemistry Group lead by Dr. Ekaterina Pomjakushina.
Materials science has a long tradition and a strong, competitive current position in Dresden. The new issue of Dresdner Transferbrief placed therefore an emphasis on emergig materials, linking industry applications and scientific research topics. The editors included also a detailed overview article with…
The new 150 bar HKZ furnace was successfully delivered and launched at the laboratory of Ekaterina Pomjakushina and her Solid State Chemistry Group from Paul Scherrer Institute PSI in Villingen, Switzerland.
Nanchang University, located in Jiangxi province of central China, recently bought a new ScIDre optical floating zone furnace HKZ, mediated by our local distributor Quantum Design China.
The working group "Oxides and Fluorides" of the Leibniz Institute for Crystal Growth (IKZ Berlin) recently ordered a specifically designed ScIDre HKZ high-temperature floating zone furnace for crystal growth of refractory materials with modular double-sided afterheater system.
Press release: Technological world record from Dresden – ScIDre high-temperature optical floating zone furnace inspires materials scientists world-wide
Cutting-edge high-pressure optical floating zone furnace (HKZ) to be installed at the Platform for the Accelerated Realization, Analysis, and Discovery of Interface Materials (PARADIM) operates at a pressure of 300 bar.
The group of Prof. Dr. Christian Pfleiderer, chair for the Topology of Correlated Systems at the Technical University of Munich, is well-known among other things for the growth of surpassing quality single crystals of intermetallic compounds. Consequently, the TUM group ordered a HKZ furnace…
Our Levitation Melting Facility KTS, a multifunctional apparatus for alloying and casting of sensitive metallic rods using a levitated melt in a cold crucible, was ordered by the Solid State Chemistry Group of Prof. K. Conder from Paul Scherrer Institute PSI in Villingen, Switzerland.
In close cooperation with the Emerging Materials Group of John Mitchell from the Argonne National Laboratory (Illinois, USA), we just started a new development project.
The goal is to create a highly advanced…
The Solid State Chemistry Group of Prof. K. Conder from Paul Scherrer Institute PSI in Villingen, Switzerland, ordered a HKZ floating zone furnace which will be able to perform growth experiments with up to 150 bar atmosphere pressure.
