Precipitation and hydrogenation of iron in multicrystalline silicon

Liu, Anyao


This thesis studies the precipitation and the hydrogenation of dissolved iron in multicrystalline silicon (mc-Si). Photoluminescence imaging is used to obtain both the concentration and the spatial distribution of interstitial iron across mc-Si wafers, with an image resolution of 25 micrometres. In the first part, as-cut mc-Si wafers were examined in order to better understand the internal gettering of iron that occurs during the mc-Si ingot directional solidification process. A simple...[Show more]
