  • Publication number: 20140202376
    Abstract: In a method, a sapphire raw material is placed into the recess of a mold and melted by heating to infill the recess by capillary action to form a liquid film. A sapphire seed having a specific growing plane is moved to dip the growing plane into the liquid film, thus forming a solid-liquid interface. The sapphire seed is lifted up such that the liquid film is crystallized on the growing surface to form the sapphire substrate. Two surfaces of the sapphire substrate are first coarsely and then finely ground to reduce a thickness of the sapphire substrate. The two surfaces of the sapphire substrate are first coarsely and then finely polished to improve smoothness of the surfaces.
