The manuscript presents the results of a combined experimental and modeling study on the Liquid Phase Diffusion (LPD) growth of single crystal SixGe1-x on Germanium with and with the application of magnetic fields. Although the LPD process is mainly diffusion driven through out the growth period, strong natural thermosolutal convection occurs in the first five hours of growth, and the growth interface is concave to the melt. Applied rotating and static magnetic fields were considered to examine the growth and silicon dissolution processes in the LPD system. Results show that the application of a combined applied magnetic is beneficial.
