Theoretical consideration for technologically important phenomena in defect engineering of Czochralski silicon was performed with first principles calculation. (i) Point defect behaviour during crystal growth, (ii) enhanced oxygen precipitation in p/p+ epitaxial wafers, and (iii) Cu gettering by impurities are main topics in this work. Following results are obtained. (i) Interstitial Si I is dominant in p type Si while vacancy V is dominant in n type Si during crystal growth when dopant concentration is higher than about 1x1019atoms/cm3. (ii) In initial stage of oxygen precipitation including a few interstitial oxygen (O) atoms, BOn complex is more stable than On complex. The diffusion barrier of O atom in p+ Si is reduced to about 2.2eV compared with the barrier of about 2.5eV in intrinsic Si. (iii) In substitutional B, Sb, As, P and C atoms, only B atom can be an effective gettering center for Cu.
