Effect of Low Frequency Magnetic Field on SiC Solution Growth
We investigated numerically fluid dynamics and carbon transport in a 2 inches SiC solution growth with the presence of alternative magnetic fields. Buoyancy and Marangoni convection are taken into account. Our numerical results revealed that the magnetic field parameters have a strong impact on the melt convection. We also propose a solution to increase the mass transfer at the crystal growth front.
