The high-performance, compact IR Image Furnace from Quantum Design offers unsurpassed performance in a convenient, stand-alone design. Rivaling much larger and more costly IR furnaces, it uses the Floating Zone (FZ) method to promote single crystal growth from a polycrystalline rod.

Manufactured by GES Corporation, this tetra arc crystal furnace uses the Czochralski pulling method and four electric arcs to grow a wide range of metallic-conductive materials such as metallic compounds and high-temperature superconductors.
