Heavily impurity (boron, gallium, phosphorus) doped single crystals of Si-rich Ge1-xSix alloys with the composition 0.80 < x < 1 were grown by the Czochralski method. Full single crystals of diameter and length more than 25 and 40mm, respectively, were obtained with variable composition 0.85 < x < 1 along the growth direction. By X-ray topography, grown-in dislocations were observed to be generated from the seed/crystal interface and from the crystal periphery. The distribution coefficient of boron impurity in the Si-rich GeSi alloys was evaluated.
