We used an advanced 3D model to study the effect of crystal orientation on the dislocation multiplication in single-crystal silicon under accurate control of the cooling history of temperature. The incorporation of the anisotropy effect of the crystal lattice into the model has been explained in detail, and an algorithm for accurate control of the temperature in the furnace has also been presented. This solver can dynamically track the history of dislocation generation for different orientations during thermal processing of single-crystal silicon. Four orientations, , , , and , have been examined, and the comparison of dislocation distributions has been provided.
