An 800 ingot, the applied voltage comes close to the threshold limit for the ionization of the argon gas. Once an argon plasma has been generated, there will be a shortcut between inductor and silicon rod followed by a failure of the RF-generator. According to Paschen’s law, a higher gas pressure shifts the threshold voltage to higher values, but there are practical limitations to the tolerable pressure inside the growth chamber. A higher pressure will also increase heat conductivity and thus requires an even higher voltage.

Crucible and susceptor are covered by a graphite plate or a SiC-coated lid) or an open system results in lower carbon concentrations. , 2012). During the process, the argon flow is in the range of 10–40 l/min and the pressure inside the furnace chamber is in the range of 500–800 mbar. , 2011, 2012b). The argon generates a cold spot in the center of the melt surface and triggers a strong surface tension-driven flow (Marangoni flow), which improves melt mixing substantially. By nature, the VGF configuration shows stable density stratification and convective melt flow is driven by radial temperature gradients only.

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. Heat transfer by radiofrequency is extremely fast. In contrast to resistance heating used for Cz, where the heat is transferred from the heater to the crucible by radiation absorbed at the surface only, induction heating generates heat in a boundary layer of several tens or some hundreds of micrometers, depending on the frequency and the material.
