Abstract

The effect of modulated crucible rotation on the axial distributions of Cu and Mg impurities in proustite single crystals grown by the Stockbarger method using accelerated crucible rotation is studied in a broad range of Taylor numbers: from 1.9 × 105 to 7.12 × 107. The axial impurity distributions in the tail portion (containing the highest impurity concentration) of the crystals are measured by electron probe x-ray microanalysis and are shown to correlate well with the periodic modulation of the crucible rotation rate.
