Both Auger and secondary ion mass spectroscopy (SIMS) measurements were carried out to give a direct evidence of the impurity gettering phenomena of the rare earth (RE) element Praseodymium (Pr) for the first time during liquid phase thin crystal film growth. Sullur and praseodymium intentionally co-added samples were grown and a significant (around two orders of magnitudes) decrease in the sullur concentration was reported.
