Abstract

A numerical simulation study is carried out for the crystal growth of Ge1-xSixby the Traveling Heater Method (THM). The effects of a geometrical misalignment on the crystal growth are investigated. The full Navier-Stokes equations together with the energy, mass transport and continuity equations are solved numerically using the finite element technique. The application of a misalignment is shown to have a considerable effect on the buoyancy induced flow. An optimal misalignment is determined, that weakens the convective flow, provides a uniform concentration along the growth interface and gives symmetrical characteristics to the three-dimensional buoyancy induced flow.
