Part of the Fluid Mechanics And Its Applications book series (FMIA, volume 80)

We may define three main categories of crystal growth techniques: growth from solid, vapour, and melt. These three main categories of crystal growth methods need careful control of the phase change. We may introduce a subcategory, growth from the solution, which is strictly already included in the above definitions, and which represents crystal growth processes of solute from an impure melt.
