Now physicists from Augsburg succeeded in synthesizing α-Li2IrO3 single crystals...

Physicists from Augsburg University together with colleagues from Oxford report on a novel method for the growth of lithium-based transition metal oxides. Augsburg/PhG/KPP -The synthesis of ceramic crystals often requires very complicated methods. Starting materials in form of powders have to be mixed, pressed and pre-reacted in order to allow for single crystal growth from the melt at elevated temperatures. Or samples are grown from solution or chemical vapor transport in complex processes. However, so far none of the established methods yields single crystals of lithium iridate - despite the great interest in this material that was initiated by the prediction of highly unusual magnetic properties.
