Title: Scalability study of solid xenon

We report a demonstration of the scalability of optically transparent xenon in the solid phase for use as a particle detector above a kilogram scale. We employed a cryostat cooled by liquid nitrogen combined with a xenon purification and chiller system. A modified {\it Bridgeman's technique} reproduces a large scale optically transparent solid xenon.
