What Governs Crystal Growth? Scientists Have Revealed a Fundamental Phenomenon

Posted by MSE Supplies Admin on

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have used computer-based simulations to discover the general mechanism that governs crystal growth in materials – fluctuations in the solvent shield.  The solvent shield is a molecular shell comprised of solvent molecules that coalesce around a crystalline material when said material is immersed within a solvent.  Fluctuations in this shield allow molecules to break free and incorporate themselves into the crystal's surface in order to grow the overall structure, molecule by molecule.  The temperature, the solvent type, and the number of solvent molecules are all controllable variables that determine these shell fluctuations. ...

Pulsed RF power device markets up to 4GHz: GaN, SiC, Si and GaAs based technologies

Posted by MSE Supplies on

The high-power pulsed RF semiconductor device market is primarily driven by several specific sub-segments. They are as follows: Avionics Sub-1 GHz Radar L-Band Radar S-Band Radar The end-customers for these devices are primarily the worldwide air traffic control system both airborne and ground-based, and commercial and military radar systems. Markets for pulsed RF power devices up to 4GHz will show continued growth over the next five years to more than $250m by 2021, despite current economic and political turmoil, forecasts a report by ABI Research. MSE Supplies is a leading supplier of GaN and SiC crystal substrates.  While their association...
