Term (Index) Definition
oxygen in silicon  oxygen finds its way into silicon during Czochralski (CZ) single-crystal growth process; in moderate concentration (below 1017 cm3) oxygen improves mechanical properties of a silicon wafer; excess oxygen may precipitate in silicon forming electrically active centers.
Czochralski crystal growth, CZ  process of obtaining single-crystal solids; the most common method for obtaining large diameter semiconductor wafers (e.g. 300 mm Si wafers); single crystal material is pulled out of the melt in which single-crystal seed is immersed and then slowly withdrawn; desired conductivity type and doping level is accomplished by adding dopants to the melt.
gettering intrinsic  gettering accomplished solely (no external physical interactions) by means of thermal treatments of the wafer applied in strictly executed sequence; forces precipitation of contaminants away from the top surface.
