Title: Growth and defects of Czochralski silicon for solar cell
Abstract: In recent, Czochralski silicon (Cz Si) has been the domain material in photovoltaic industry, which occupies more than 95% market shares last year. In Cz Si, oxygen induced during crystal growth is the main impurity which has the significant effect on the property of Si ingot material and even the efficiency of solar cells.
In this report, we will present the behaviors of interstitial oxygen and oxygen precipitation in Cz Si used for photovoltaic. The relationship between swirl defect circles in Si wafer and oxygen precipitates has been studied. Moreover, the influence of the defects related to oxygen impurity has been discussed.
