Mechanical properties of melt-derived erbium oxide
stable and has a melting point of 2430 "C. There is relatively little information available regarding single crystal growth of erbia or the properties of erbia. In this study, erbia single crystals have been grown in a Xenon Optical Floating Zone Unit (XeOFZ) capable of melting materials at temperatures up to 3000 "C. Erbia was melt synthesized in the XeOFZ unit in a containerless fashion, proving for little chance of contamination. Crystals were grown in compressed air and in reducingdoi:10.2172/296753 fatcat:3u5j3admkregbiayskxu422q2e
