Scope of Activities
Scientific activity in the Department of Crystallography is focused on the single-crystalline materials, they characterization and obtaining processes. The investigations concern strict single-crystals, composites with single-crystalline matrix as well as single-crystalline superalloys, e.g. turbine blades of aircraft engines, composites with quasicrystalline phase fraction or semiconductor silicides.
The studies concentrate on determination of the structural perfection and analysis of growth defects of single-crystalline industrial components in relation to obtaining conditions. Additionally, the precise lattice parameter determination and changes in optical single-crystals (the Bond method) are performed.
Four-test-bench X-ray diffractometer for crystal orientation measurements by Laue method, based on the VEM HV generator.
Induction vertical furnace BCG-265 for directional solidification of single-crystalline materials using Bridgman or Czochralski technique.
