Abstract

Micro-pulling down (μ-PD) method allows to prepare single crystals quickly and relatively inexpensively. Since it is a melt growth and taking into account segregation phenomena, the μ-PD method allows also to obtain single crystals characterized by dopant concentration gradients. Especially, taking the advantage of the grown crystal high aspect ratio, it allows to prepare crystalline samples with variable and wide range concentrations of dopants. These samples can help in understanding the correlation between dopant concentration and luminescence properties.
