Description

Silicon is the most common semiconductor and the most widely used in the electronic and technology sector. There are different silicon fabrication methods including the horizontal gradient freeze method and vertical Bridgeman method. Silicon is the principal platform for a semiconductor device, a wafer is a thin slice of this semiconductor material, which serves as the substrate for a microelectronic device built in and over the wafer. Silicon wafer’s primary use in integrated circuits which power many of the products that modern society uses every day. Computers, smartphones and solar cells are only three products that are dependent on this technology. although other semiconductors have been tested over time, silicon has proved to be a stable option.
