The ammonoacidic crystal growth is a comprehensive method for the synthesis of novel compounds like nitrides or amindes but also for the growth of bulk single crystals like gallium or aluminum nitride for power electronics and photonics. In this report we describe a novel liner technology for growth autoclaves, showing high potential for several research purposes. Thereby the applicability of several ceramic materials as liner materials was investigated for the first time. Moreover, the effectivity of the new apparatus was verified in experimental studies. The described concept based on a silicon nitride crucible is characterized by low costs and diverse possible applications. For example its use is of advantage in fundamental research to explore new nitride materials. Furthermore, it shows high potential for X-ray imaging to investigate basic principles in growth of gallium nitride.
