This case study of epitaxial deposition of silicon film on a silicon substrate in a horizontal hot-wall reactor reproduces an earlier modeling study by Habuka et al. [1]. The steady-state finite element (FEM) model incorporates fluid flow, heat transfer, dilute species transport, and one-step Arrhenius kinetics at the wafer surface. Additionally, the transport properties of the gas species are all temperature dependent.
