Although the impact of stirring on this metastable region is important in mass crystallization of salt, sugar and many chemicals, it is not yet theoretically understood. The rates of nucleation and crystallization in glasses were the foundation to nucleation theories. The crystal surface with steps and kinks of Kossel in 1927 allowed Stranski and Kaishew in 1934 to deﬁne the work of separation of crystal units as repeatable steps as the basis of the ﬁrst crystal-growth theories. With the understanding of facet formation as a function of the entropy of fusion in 1958 by Jackson, and depending on the density of bonds in the crystal structure 1955 by Hartman and Perdok, the role of screw dislocations as continuous step sources in the formation of growth hillocks (Frank 1949), and with the generalized crystal growth theory of Burton, Cabrera and Frank 1951, many growth phenomena could be explained.
In vertical Bridgman and in VGF growth the forced convection by the accelerated-crucible rotation technique (ACRT) of Scheel 1972 has increased homogeneity, structural perfection, and stable growth rates in the cases of halides (Horowitz et al. 1983) and doped CdTe (Capper 1994, 2000). 10 Crystal Growth Technology In silicon, the octahedral void defects (see Falster and Itsumi in this volume) and their distribution as well as oxygen and dopant homogeneity require further understanding (see Abe, Falster) and process optimization, otherwise an increasing fraction of silicon wafers have to be provided with epitaxial layers in order to achieve the homogeneity of surface properties required for highly integrated microelectronic circuit structures.
Of the congruent melting point, and (iii) the precipitation of the excess component during cooling of the as-grown crystal due to the retrograde behavior of the solidus lines. Here, one should distinguish between precipitates, generated by point-defect condensation in the solid, and inclusions that are formed by melt droplet capture from the diffusion boundary layer in front of the growing interface and enriched by the excess component (case (i)). Second-phase precipitates and inclusions are common defects in melt-grown compound semiconductors (II-VI, III-V, IV-VI) and in several oxide systems.
