Abstract

A global simulation of coupled oxygen and carbon transport in a unidirectional solidification furnace was carried out for accurate prediction of distributions of carbon and oxygen impurities in multicrystalline silicon material for solar cells. Both the gas flow and silicon melt flow were coupled each other. Five chemical reactions were taken into account during the transportation of the impurities.
