Growing Large Highly Perfect Single Crystals and Its Limitations
Why are large highly perfect single crystals needed? Notice that emphasis is on large here.
How are large single crystals grown and what are the limits to the perfection of the crystals?
How is the perfection of large and almost perfect crystals studied? In the present context this is an important subject, but far from being an easy task. If the outcome of experiments indicates that improvements are needed in crystal-growing methods, one does not want to wait until a newly grown crystal is in a 100-GeV beam and then find out that it does not work. Methods are needed that give quantitative information on the perfection beforehand.
