Thermal conductivity of n-type Ge monocrystals


The pyroelectric method is used to demonstrate the dependence of the thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity coefficients of n-type germanium monocrystals on the concentration of antimony impurities (6 × 1013, 1.3 × 1014, 1.7 × 1014, 3.7 × 1014, 6 × 1014 cm−3). The investigated samples are cut from germanium crystals grown from a melt using the Czochralski method with crystallographic orientation [111].
