A up to date overview of 1 of my provide functions commented at the ‘rediscovery of tropomyosin’. i used to be tempted to put in writing again in my rebuttal to the reviewer that I didn’t understand it have been misplaced. Uncharacteristic adulthood prevailed and that i resisted the temptation, yet i used to be struck by means of the underlying remark that learn at the str- ture and serve as of tropomyosin has been slightly invisible, quite by way of the cytoskeleton isoforms.

The same is true for HEM. Furthermore, the less puller stations for the same amount of ingot production also imply the lower personal cost. 4 Crystal Quality Improvement Finally, since crystal quality is directly related to solar cell efficiency, it has to be taken into account for the overall PV cost. In general, the sc-Si ingot is pulled in the <100> direction and this is preferred in the alkaline texturing for the inverted pyramids during solar cell fabrication. Also, because (111) slip planes are oblique to the growth direction, dislocations generated can propagated outward to the crystal surface leading to a dislocation-free ingot.

Both molybdenum (Mo) and graphite with coating have been considered for the cone material. 2b shows the photographs of both cones. The lifetime of both cones is long, but the Mo cone is more robust and can be cleaned easily by sand blast. 1 Power and Growth Speed The main purpose of using the cone is to block the thermal radiation from the melt to crystal, so that the crystal can be cooler and pulled faster. 1) where kS and kL are the thermal conductivities of the crystal and melt, while GS and GL are the thermal gradients in the solid and melt, respectively; ρS is the density, ΔH heat of fusion, and V the pulling speed.

6. The FZ setup consists of the upper and lower vertical pulling spindle carrying the polycrystalline feed rod and the thin rod-like seed crystal at their ends, respectively. Between them, the pancake-shaped inductor, a one-turn RF coil is placed for contactless inductive heating. 5 MHz working frequency, until a hanging melt drop is formed and stabilized by the surface tension (Fig. 1a). Then, the seed is moved upwards until it touches the melt drop. After slightly back-melting, the seed is moved downwards and a thin monocrystalline neck is grown to remove all dislocations through the neck surface, after Dash [2, 3].
