Introduction to Crystal Growth: Principles and Practice teaches readers about crystals and their origins. It offers a historical perspective of the subject and includes background information whenever possible. The first section of this introductory book takes readers through the historical development and motivation of the field of crystal growth. With more than 40 years of experience in the field, the author covers nucleation, two-dimensional layer growth mechanism, defects in crystals, and screw dislocation theory of crystal growth. He also explains some aspects of the important subject of phase diagrams. The second section focuses on the experimental techniques of crystal growth. For practicing crystal growers, the book provides nuts-and-bolts techniques and tips. It discusses the major techniques categorized by solidasolid, liquidasolid, and vaporasolid equilibria and describes characterization techniques essential to measuring the quality of grown crystals.An extended review article on the process has been written by Falckenberg  and can be found in the book edited by C. H. L. Goodman. Figure 8.41 shows a schematic of a Verneuil system. In a typical growth run, ... released, oxygen is supplied into the furnace and travels with the powder down a narrow tube.
