Abstract The effect of accelerated crucible rotation technique (ACRT) on liquid phase diffusion (LPD) growth of Si x Ge 1− x crystal has been investigated numerically. Transient, axisymmetric simulations have been carried out for triangular and trapezoidal ACRT cycles. Natural convection driven flow in the early growth hours is found to be modified by the ACRT induced Ekman flow. Results also reveal that a substantial mixing in the solution can be induced by the application of ACRT in the later… CONTINUE READING
