Amazing growth of helium crystal facets


National Research Centre Kurchatov Institute, pl. akad. Kurchatova 1, Moscow, 123182, Russian Federation

This review systematizes the experimental data from the study of two unusual phenomena: the super-slow growth of a perfect, growth-defect-free crystal facet, and the abrupt transition of a crystal facet to an abnormal state at a growth rate two to three orders of magnitude greater than the normal value (the effect of "burst-like growth").
