Abstract


The radial oxygen nucleation and precipitation in Czochralski-grown silicon crystals is observed in real time via the local evolution of the X-ray Bragg intensity. Using a high X-ray energy and a divergent beam setup, it becomes possible to examine the impact of the local as-grown point defect configuration on the formation of bulk micro defects in a crystal of macroscopic dimensions. As a salient feature the transition from vacancy- to interstitial-dominated regions in a 12 crystal can be identified, and its influence on the precipitation kinetics is quantified through effective oxygen diffusion constant. It appears enhanced by up to a factor of six in vacancy-rich regions as compared to crystal volumes which are identified as point-defect free where it agrees well with the literature value.
