Most of the manufacturers have longterm experience and the process is based on operator skills and there is a significant lack of automation. The combination of high equipment costs and the need for highly skilled operators is a certain barrier for newcomers to enter the FZ market. State of the art is 600 but still some 400 wafers are in use. A typical 400 FZ ingot is shown in Fig. 28. 800 equipment and process know-how are under development for the open market. , Topsil in Denmark or Wacker in Germany.
22). The inductor is sitting between the feed and the crystal (would the bridge freeze, the inductor would be captured between feed and crystal; Fig. 23). 500 , depending on the anticipated crystal diameter. The outer diameter has to be slightly larger than the crystal to be grown and the feed to be molten, respectively. Operational frequencies are in the range of 500 kHz up to 3 MHz, preferably in the range of 2–3 MHz. , 1994). The FZ process provides a perfect optical access (Fig. 24) and process control is either performed manually by the operator according to direct observation of the growth process or it is based on image processing.
The furnace is loaded from the bottom and is equipped with three heaters (top–side– bottom). Silicon Crystallization Technologies 37 Figure 19 Temperature field of a G4 furnace. In particular, the bottom area is of great importance, since the latent heat has to be removed through the bottom area without bending the solid–liquid interface. Most furnaces use either a water-cooled or a gascooled baseplate. The loading of a crucible and a resulting G4 block, together with a side slab and a finished brick for wafering, are seen in Fig.
