Quartz Crucible Market: Notable Developments
A research team from Washington State University is trying to develop solar cells using cadmium telluride (CdTe) material. The material could be produced rapidly. The production technique involves the use of high pressure furnace. CdTe feedstock material produced in the furnace is 45% cost effective and is scalable. Also, the crystalline material has better electrical properties for production of solar cell.
The furnace uses strong quartz crucible for synthesis of CdTe material.

Quartz Crucible Market: Key Trends
Emerging communication technologies such as mobile phones and microprocessor integrated devices are semiconductor based. These mono-crystalline crystals are developed using silicon. Hence, rise in demand for smart phones, flash memory cards, tablets, and consumer electronics items has been explicitly boosting demand for single crystal silicon ingots. This, in turn, has fuelled the development process of new technologies associated with silicon wafers.
Further, it is predicted that silicon material is polycrystalline silicon. This is due to impurity present in the polycrystalline silicon. As a result, demand for quartz crucible is also rising. It aids in providing low impurity single crystal silicon ingot, which are dislocation-free.
Quartz and silicon has varying thermal expansion coefficient. Thus, its reuse may lead to mechanical stress. Further, this would cause crystalline defects, resulting in crucible cracking. Thus, reusability of quartz crucible is a prominent restraining factor. This may limit the application of quartz crucibles in the semiconductor market.
