Reactor-scale Modeling of Silicon Epitaxy

This case study of epitaxial deposition of silicon film on a silicon substrate in a horizontal hot-wall reactor reproduces an earlier modeling study by Habuka et al. [1]. The steady-state finite element (FEM) model incorporates fluid flow, heat transfer, dilute...
