Crystal Growth of Si Ingots for Solar Cells Using Cast Furnaces is the first book written to both comprehensively describe these concepts and technologies and compare the strengths and weaknesses of various techniques. Readers will learn about the basic growth and characterization of Si crystals, including sections on the history of cast methods for Si ingots for solar cells. Methods discussed include the dendrite cast method, as well as other significant technologies, including the high-performance (HP) cast and mono-like cast methods. These concepts, growth mechanisms, growth technologies, and the problems that still need to be solved are all included in this comprehensive volume.

"This book provides excellent coverage of the science and technology that has gone into improving multicrystalline silicon for solar cells. The figures clearly illustrate important concepts. The references are up to date (through 2018) and extensive. Despite the many years of research that has gone into silicon solar cells, this book demonstrates that innovation is still possible to produce better quality materials." --MRS Bulletin
