Niobium carbide heaters used in growing silicon carbide single crystals
Silicon carbide single crystals can be grown by sublimation by using a furnace with niobium carbide heaters. The working life of these heaters is much greater than that of graphite ones. The crystals are suitable for making light-emitting diodes.
