Crystal growth of ZnSe from a SnSe solution zone by the traveling heater method (THM) is an example of using a suitable solvent [23], see Fig. 14. ZnSe is a high-melting semiconducting compound with a melting point at about 1525 ◦ C. Since the application of silica ampoules is limited up to about 1200 ◦ C, the solvent for ZnSe should be an end member of a eutectic system with a eutectic line clearly below 1200 ◦ C.

E. kinetic quantities, for the forward and back reactions. Another link between thermodynamics and kinetics arises from the fact that most expressions for the rate of crystal growth contain concentrations (or gradients 37 38 2 Fundamentals of Equilibrium Thermodynamics of Crystal Growth thereof). These concentrations are frequently determined from thermodynamic computations. In liquid phase epitaxial growth of compound semiconductor layers, the growth rate depends on the slope of the liquidus line and on the supercooling ∆T at the time of the initial contact between substrate and growth solution.
