Paper Title:
Numerical and Experimental Study of the Electromagnetic Continuous Casting of Silicon
  Abstract

For the preparation of multi-crystalline Si ingot, an EMC (Electromagnetic Continuous Casting) technique using a segmented Cu cold crucible under a high frequency alternating magnetic field was utilized. Numerical and experimental works were systematically carried out in order to optimize the effect of Joule heating and electromagnetic pressure. A Si melt of 5.5 cm height was able to be kept non-contact with the crucible wall when the induction coil current of 970 A was applied. A segmented graphite crucible, which was attached at the upper part of the cold crucible, was introduced to enhance significantly the heating efficiency of Si melt keeping non-contact condition.
