Growth of Cerium Doped Yttrium Aluminum Garnet from an Alumina Rich Melt
Abstract This WSU invention concerns the growth of Cerium Doped Yttrium Aluminum Garnet (Ce:YAG) from a melt containing aluminum oxide with known amounts of YAG. Ce:YAG is a phosphor, when in its pure single-crystal from, with a wide range of uses. Notably, crystals can be used in white light-emitting diodes, as a coating on a high-brightness blue Indium...
