  • Patent number: 10377636
    Abstract: A polycrystalline silicon rod is synthesized by the Siemens method (S101). After the polycrystalline silicon rod is covered from above with a plastic bag whose inner surface has been washed, and housed in the plastic bag in a reactor (S103), the polycrystalline silicon rod is removed out of the reactor (S104), and heat-sealed and stored in an enclosed state (S105). According to the present invention, steps conventionally considered as essential, such as washing, etching, and water washing, are not always necessary, and therefore the concentrations of fluorine ions, nitrate ions, and nitrogen dioxide ions remaining on the surface can each be less than 0.2 ppbw. In addition, by covering with the plastic bag, the metal contamination levels decrease significantly. Moreover, when the handling according to the present invention is performed, surface contamination hardly proceeds even if the polycrystalline silicon rod is stored for a long period.
