    Abstract

    Some practical aspects of the engineering and science of large-diameter crystal growth are presented. Growth characteristics and problems associated with thermal stress and crystal shape are discussed. Oxygen distribution in the melt and its incorporation into the crytal are investigated. Finally, a double-crucible technique is presented and its application to N+ silicon growth is discussed.
