  • Publication number: 20190352796
    Abstract: Provided is a method of producing a high resistance n-type silicon single crystal ingot with small tolerance margin on resistivity in the crystal growth direction, which is suitably used in a power device. In the method of producing a silicon single crystal ingot using Sb or As as an n-type dopant, while a silicon single crystal ingot is pulled up, the amount of the n-type dopant being evaporated from a silicon melt per unit solidification ratio is kept within a target evaporation amount range per unit solidification ratio by controlling one or more pulling condition values including at least one of the pressure in a chamber, the flow volume of Ar gas, and a gap between a guide portion and the silicon melt.
