High-frequency Heat Induction Modeling for a Novel Silicon Crystal Growth Method


Float Zone growth of silicon crystals is known as the method for providing excellent material properties. Basic principle of this method is the radiofrequency induction heating, main aspects of this method will be discussed in this article. In contrast to other methods, one of the advantages of the Float Zone method is the possibility for in-situ doping via gas phase. Experimental results on this topic will be shown and discussed.
