Resource type: Image
Description: This photograph shows long bar morphology of a FeSi single crystal grown by dissolving arc-melted FeSi pieces in Sb or Sn flux at ˜1200°C, then slowly cooling down to ˜700°C. Small thermal gradients in the flux growth environment sometimes favors faster growths in a given crystallographic direction - [111] in the case of FeSi.
