Abstract

The carrier recombination rate in high-quality FZ and Cz silicon substrates is studied by contactless infrared and microwave absorption techniques. Different surface treatments covering a wide range of surface recombination velocity have been used for the separation of bulk and surface recombination components and evaluating of the efficiency of passivation. Limitations of effective lifetime approach are analyzed specific for low and high injection level. Sensitivity limits of the techniques for iron contamination are discussed
