Silicon Ingot Rod Grinding
This Quicktime animation shows the second main step in the silicon wafer development process after the ingots are cooled. This animation shows the process of grinding silicon ingots to the proper diameter. This happens...
The Chip History Center: A Virtual Museum Covering the History of the Semiconductor Industry
This website traces the history of the microchip, and more broadly, the semiconductor industry. The page contains elements such as: landmarks in the history, legends of the industry, major companies, exhibits and even a...
Cool Light Leads to Greener Chips
The team from University College London used low-temperature, ultraviolet lamps to make silicon dioxide, a vital component of almost all modern chips. This article, published by the BBC, addresses all of these areas and...
Silicon Wafer Epitaxy
This Quicktime animation shows an optional process for creating silicon epitaxial wafers. The animations shows a trichlorosilane gas being injected which creates a monocrystaline film atop the preexisting wafer. This...
Silicon Ingot Edge Profiling Animation
This brief Quicktime animation shows the edges of silicon wafers being rounded and smoothed after the ingot have been sawed into slices. This animation is the fourth in a series showing silicon wafer production...
