The temperature dependence of the upper yield stress in dislocation-free Czochralski-grown silicon (CZ-Si) and float-zone-grown silicon (FZ-Si) crystals and an FZ-Si crystal of grown-in dislocations of 2 × 104 cm-2 were obtained at temperatures close to the melting point. The result is compared with those reported at lower temperatures to provide a fundamental knowledge for wafer processing and crystal growth.
