We review recent advances in crystal growth techniques, focusing on the development of novel quantum materials. Recent progress in instrumentation design, opening new avenues in bulk crystal growth of oxide and intermetallic compounds, is highlighted. Specifically, we illustrate leading techniques that allow for the active control of crystal nucleation/growth and provide platforms for the realization of single crystals with ultrahigh purity and minimized defects. Advances in the postgrowth manipulation of crystals, as well as the impact of purification techniques on the stabilization of delicate quantum phases, are also discussed. Throughout, we highlight new scientific avenues opened by access to high-purity single-crystal samples.
