Mapping Low Angle Light Scattering method (MLALS) is proposed to study defect structure in materials used for solar cell production. Several types of defects are observed in Czochralski Si1-xGex (0.022<x<0.047) single crystals. Recombination activity of these defects is investigated. The possibility of contactless visualisation of grain boundary recombination in polysilicon is also demonstrated.
