Crystal Orientation in High Magnetic Field
A new technology relating to crystal orientation and structure alignment has emerged by the development of superconducting technologies. Now, a high magnetic field covering a rather large space is available even in small-scale laboratories. Under this circumstance it has been found that the crystal orientation in materials can be controlled by imposition of the high magnetic field. This principle due to a magnetization force can be applied not only to magnetic materials but also to non-magnetic materials with asymmetric unit cells. In this paper, three novel processes for the crystal orientation of ceramics and metals are described.
