A propagation rule was studied for two types of slip dislocations arising during crystal growth. In order to specify the dislocation distribution revealed by x-ray topography, we considered the relationship among the slip system, thermal gradient, and stress field. One type of slip dislocation was found to propagate on slip systems having a maximum Schmid factor in a uniform radial stress field, while another well known type occurred in a tangential stress field. It was concluded that different slip systems can be activated by specific stress fields caused by different thermal gradients under various growth conditions.
