What Are Silicon Wafers?

Elemental silicon is a gray, brittle, tetravalent non-metallic chemical element. 27.8% of the earth's crust is composed of silicon, second only to the content of oxygen. Silicon is a relatively rich element in nature. Silicon can be found in quartz, agate, vermiculite and common beach stones. Silicon wafers, also called wafers, are processed from silicon ingots. Millions of transistors can be etched on silicon wafers through special processes, which are widely used in the manufacture of integrated circuits.

Silicon is a semiconductor material, and its own conductivity is not very good. However, it can be done by adding the appropriate
Semiconductors or chips are produced from silicon. Millions of transistors are etched on the wafer, which are hundreds of times smaller than human hair. Semiconductors manage data by controlling currents to form a variety of characters, numbers, sounds, images, and colors. They are widely used in integrated circuits and indirectly used by everyone on the planet. Some of these applications are everyday applications, such as computers, telecommunications, and television, and others are used in advanced microwave transmission, laser conversion systems, medical diagnostic and treatment equipment, defense systems, and NASA space shuttles.
