Silicon wafer


Semiconductors; Silicon wafer

A cylinder or rectangular solid of poly crystalline or single crystal silicon, generally of slightly irregular dimensions.

intrinsic gettering

Semiconductors; Silicon wafer

Process in which gettering of contaminants and/or defects in a semiconductor is accomplished (without any physical interactions with the wafer) by a series of heat treatments.

minority carrier

Semiconductors; Silicon wafer

Type of charge carrier constituting less than one half the total charge carrier concentration.


Semiconductors; Silicon wafer

Process which moves contaminants and/or defects in a semiconductor away from its top surface into its bulk and traps them there, creating a denuded zone.

Jeida Flat

Semiconductors; Silicon wafer
