SiO2 Doped Sapphire single Crystal Growth by Verneuil Method
SiO2 doped sapphire single crystals were grown by Verneuil method using feed material which prepared by adding SiO2 in Al2O3. Crystal growing were attempted with varing doping amount of SiO2 from 0.01 to 1.0 wt% and when the doping amount of SiO2 were 0.01~0.04 wt%, single crystals could be attained. Starting materials for feed powder were 99.99% purity alumina and extra pure SiO2 powder. Mixing these two materials by wet milling for 24 hours and drying the mixture and then was calcined at 900~110$0^{circ}C$ for 2~4 hours. The grown crystals had yellowish color and were somewhat transparent. During growing process the flow range of oxygen was 5~7.5ι/min and of hydrogen was 13~25ι/min, the average growth rate was 7.0~11 mm/hr. The pressure of gases were fixed at 5psi. The color of crystal was appeared and mechanical property of sapphire was developed by doping of SiO2.
