I was going through a paper on a material. In that paper the authors mention "as-grown crystal".

I tried looking for it on Wikipedia and searched it online but none of them tell what it is. So can anyone help?

  • $\begingroup$ That means they grew it, per the description, and did not do further processing (zone refining, annealing, etc.). $\endgroup$ – Jon Custer May 18 at 16:47
