Class Information
Number: 117/81
Name: Single-crystal, oriented-crystal, and epitaxy growth processes; non-coating apparatus therefor > Processes of growth from liquid or supercritical state > Havin growth from molten state (e.g., solution melt) > Growth confined by a solid member other than seed or product (e.g., bridgman-stockbarger method)
Description: Subject matter in which a solid member, other than the seed or product, confines growth in at least one direction and at least partially defines the shape of the product; for example, a crucible* or a mold.
