    Abstract Numerical simulations were carried out to explain the behavior exhibited in experimental work on the dissolution process of silicon into a germanium melt. The experimental work utilized a material configuration similar to that used in the Liquid Phase Diffusion (LPD) and Melt-Replenishment Czochralski (Cz) growth systems. The experimental dissolution system was modeled by considering axisymmetric and three-dimensional (3-D) domains. In both cases, the governing equations, namely conservation of mass, momentum balance, energy balance, and solute transport balance, were solved using the Finite Element Method.
    Measured concentration profiles and dissolution heights from the experiment samples showed that the application of a… More >
