Single crystals are the pillars for many technological advancements, which begin with acquiring the material. Since different compounds have different physical and chemical properties, different techniques are needed to obtain their single crystals. New classes of quantum materials, from insulators to semimetals, that exhibit non-trivial topologies, have been found. They display a plethora of novel phenomena, including topological surface states, new fermions such as Weyl, Dirac, or Majorana, and non-collinear spin textures such as antiskyrmions. To obtain the crystals and explore the properties of these families of compounds, it is necessary to employ different crystal growth techniques such as the chemical vapour transport method, Bridgman technique, flux growth method, and floating-zone method.
