A heavily boron (B)-doped germanium (Ge) bulk crystal was grown by the Czochralski method. The B concentrations in the crystal were evaluated by measuring the carrier concentration with the Hall effect and resistance method. Maximum solubility of B into Ge was estimated to be 2.5×1018 cm-3. The equilibrium segregation coefficient of B in Ge was considered to be 5-6, much smaller than that reported previously.
