Crystal Growth

From blanks to high specification optical components

We have more than 70 years’ experience in growing the widest variety of crystals.

Crystal growth takes place in custom-built furnaces, mainly using the Bridgman-Stockbarger and Nacken-Kyropoulos techniques. Our crystals can be provided as raw boules, cut and shaped blanks or as polished optical components.

We offer the following crystal materials (please specify the desired n-type doping):
