Specialized units include two optical float-zone units, two RF-heated Czochralski units and one Tri-arc unit for Czochralski-type growth. There are also three zone furnaces suitable for Bridgman growth. In addition, there is ancillary equipment for sample preparation, such as an arc melter, a cold isostatic press and various furnaces and ovens.
