Abstract :

�?²-Ga2O3 belongs to the group of transparent semiconducting oxides (TSOs) showing a unique combination of semiconducting behavior and full transparency in the visible/UV spectrum, as the result of a wide bandgap of 4.85 eV. So far a number of applications have been demonstrated for �?²-Ga2O3 at laboratory scale, including electronic, optoelectronic and sensing devices, such as power transistors, Schottky diodes, visible/solar-blind photodetectors, oxygen and hydrogen sensors as well as photocatalysts. For the applications, bulk single crystals are required which should combine large size, high structural quality and suitable properties, especially when the industrial scale is in quest. This compound is thermally unstable at high temperatures and the growth from the melt requires much scientific and technological attention. In this report the author will focus on the growth of �?²-Ga2O3 single crystals by the Czochralski method and discuss issues associated with the scale-up and in addition, will summarize basic properties and structural quality of the obtained crystals.
