The kinetics of liquid-phase epitaxy of moving-temperature-gradient zone refining

  • I. P. Papkov


The authors analyze the dependence of the growth rate of layers during moving-temperaturegradient zone refining on the zone thickness, the process temperature, and the mechanism of atomic-kinetic processes at interfaces. The results of experimental investigations of the growth kinetics in the silicon-aluminum system are in agreement with theoretical analyses.
