Revolutionizing Crystal Growth CZ Method Takes the Single Crystal Silicon Wafer Market by Storm

The CZ method segment is a dominant contributor to the revenue in the global market for single crystal silicon wafers. This method involves an oriented single-crystal seed attached to a cooled pulling shaft, dipped into the molten semiconductor charge contained in a heated cylindrical crucible. The seed is then withdrawn while reducing the power supplied to the crucible, resulting in the growth of a single crystal. This crystal growth technology begins with inserting a small seed crystal into the melt in a crucible and pulling the seed upwards to obtain a single crystal.

The North American market for single crystal silicon wafers is driven by increasing demand for low-cost wafers for solar cell production.
