The defect structure of dislocation-free silicon single crystals has been calculated using the approximate solution of the Fokker-Planck partial differential equations. It has been demonstrated that the precipitation starts to occur near the crystallization front due to the disappearance of excess intrinsic point defects on sinks whose role is played by oxygen and carbon impurities.
