Abstract : IN AN EFFORT TO ACHIEVE A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF THE MECHANISM OF THE Travelling Solvent Method and its use for producing p-n junctions, the system Ga-GaAs was investigated further. Work was carried out in the following areas: (1) Ga-GaAs System (p-n junction formation by solvent doping; electrical characterization of p-n junctions; and study of zone movementAS A FUNCTION OF ZONE THICKNESS AND OF A-face/Bface orientation) and (2) S IC (the Cr-SiC system to improve wetting and zone passing; and initial studies of the Si-SiC system using vapordeposited Si).
