- Electron backscatter diffraction beyond the mainstream
Gert Nolze, Ralf Hielscher and Aimo Winkelmann
Version of Record online: 24 OCT 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/crat.201600252
EBSD patterns acquired even under common conditions can deliver much more information in higher precision and accuracy than nowadays extracted by standard processing. This concerns the orientation resolution just as the invalidity of Friedel's rule, the processing of pseudosymmetric phases, or even a lattice parameter determination from single EBSD patterns. The key approach is an automated matching of experimental with simulated patterns.
- Effect of supersaturation on deuteration distribution in K(H1-xDx)2PO4 crystals

The DKDP crystals with different deuterated levels were grown from the growth solutions by various supersaturations. The effect of the supersaturation on the segregation level of the deuterium content in DKDP crystals was studied by the Raman and Infrared spectrum.
- Linear electrooptic effect of the monoclinic polar bismuth triborate, BiB3O6
Ladislav Bohatý, René Ochrombel, Josef Liebertz and Petra Becker

The nonlinear optical crystal BiB3O6 (“BIBO”) is introduced as an attractive linear electrooptic material. All components of the electrooptic tensor are determined and the analysis of the tensor proves that the effective electrooptic coefficients of BiB3O6 are superior to those of other NLO borate crystals and are comparable in magnitude to those of the electrooptic material KH2PO4 (KDP).
- Solution growth and morphology of CH3NH3PbBr3 single crystals in different solvents
Jing Su, Lin Sang, Di Wang, Di Lu, Wanfu Wang and Yan Wen
Version of Record online: 7 OCT 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/crat.201600193
Large-sized CH3NH3PbBr3 single crystals were successful grown using solution evaporation method. The solubility of CH3NH3PbBr3 in HBr solution was determined at the temperature range between 20 °C–90 °C.A special micro-growth device was designed to in-situ study the morphology of CH3NH3PbBr3 crystal. The structures, morphology, and crystal habits of CH3NH3PbBr3 in different solvents were analyzed. The results show that solvent would affect the morphology and crystal habit greatly during crystal growth from solution.
- Development of carbon transport and modeling in Czochralski silicon crystal growth
Xin Liu, Satoshi Nakano and Koichi Kakimoto
Version of Record online: 7 OCT 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/crat.201600221
Advances in the modeling of carbon contamination in Czochralski silicon crystal growth are reviewed on the basis of the mass transport phenomena in the argon gas and silicon domains. Strategies for carbon content reduction are discussed on the basis of the mechanisms of carbon accumulation. The final carbon content depends on both the growth duration as well as the flux of contaminants at the gas/melt interface.
