Abstract

We present a method for the solution growth of single crystals from reactive Li and Ca melts and its application to the synthesis of several, representative compounds. Among these, single crystalline Li3N, Li-2(Li1-xTx) N with T = {Mn, Fe, Co}, LiCaN, Li2C2, LiRh and LiIr from Li-rich flux, as well as Ca2N, CaNi2, CaNi3, YbNi2, Y2Ni7 and LaNi5 from Ca-rich flux could be obtained. Special emphasize is given on the growth of nitrides using commercially available Li3N and Ca3N2 powders as the nitrogen source instead of N-2 gas.
