Abstract

This paper discusses the temperature dependence of recombination lifetime in a variety of silicon materials using energy level as a parameter. A theoretical approach based on the Shockley-Read-Hall theory for energy level calculations has been used. Various types of defects created by introducing impurities, dislocations and grain boundaries into silicon waferswere studied. Results are presented for Czochralski grown Si wafers intentionally contaminated with gold and chromium, EFG ribbon with varying concentration of oxygen, web ribbons with extended defects and contaminants, large grain polycrystalline material, and Si/Si-Ge/Si heterostructures with varying misfit and threading dislocation density.
