For accurate prediction of carbon and oxygen impurities in a single crystal produced by the Czochralski method, global simulation of coupled oxygen and carbon transport in the whole furnace was implemented. Both gas-phase transportation and liquid-phase transportation of oxygen and carbon were considered. With five chemical reactions considered, SiO and CO concentrations in gas and C and O atom concentrations in silicon melt were solved simultaneously. The simulation results show good agreement with experimental data.
