Numerical and experimental modeling of the melt flow in a traveling magnetic field for Vertical Gradient Freeze crystal growth
Galindo, V.; Grants, I.; Lantzsch, R.; Pätzold, O.; Gerbeth, G.;
A Traveling Magnetic Field (TMF) is attractive for melt crystal growth as it offers a direct flow driving mechanism. We present numerical and experimental results on the TMF driven flow in an isothermal model fluid. The TMF is generated by a system of six equidistant coils, which are fed by a three phase current power supply to create an up- or downward directed traveling field. Special attention is focused on the description of the electromagnetic fields for varying field frequency, and its influence on the resulting melt velocity.
