The feed stock used for a conventional recharging process in Czochralski (Cz) silicon crystal growth process is Siemens Chunk polysilicon or Ethyl par- ticulate polysilicon. The conventional recharging method requires an internal or external feed tube or hopper to feed the poly (silicon) into the remaining melt aher pulling a single crystal out. This article describes a new method which using a poly (crys- talline) crystal attached to a single crystal seed as a feed stock. Therefore, no internal or external feed tube or hopper is required in performing the recharging process.
