High Purity Crucibles-Selection and Applications

Posted by Chia-yu Chen on

Crucibles are widely used in thermal and e-beam evaporation, crystal growth, and sintering applications. The two major factors of selecting crucibles are thermal and chemical compatibility.  The temperature range and the degree of corrosion resistant vary based on the crucible materials. The common crucible materials include aluminum oxide, graphite, quartz, boron nitride, tungsten, zirconia etc. MSE Supplies offers various crucibles and provide custom service. Below are some suggestions and guidelines for finding suitable crucibles Evaporation deposition Crucibles can be used in e-beam evaporation and thermal evaporation deposition. The materials to be evaporated are placed in a crucible. It requires high...
