The growth of single crystal oxides for optical and magnetic purposes is commonly carried out using platinum containers. Modifications to container design have been important factors in improving growth conditions. A new composite three-layer crucible has been fabricated in platinum and iridium for growing crystals of sodium barium niobate, and a platinum container which can be drained of flux has been developed for growing rare earth iron garnets.
