Monocrystalline silicon is the base material of the electronic industry. It consists of silicon in which the crystal lattice of the entire solid is constant, unbroken ( with no grain limits ) to its edges. It can be prepared, i.e. Made of very pure silicon alone, or, containing minute quantities of other elements added to switch in a controlled manner its semiconducting properties. Most silicon monocrystals are grown by the Czochralski process, in the form of cylinders up to two m long and thirty cm in diameter, which, cut in thin slices, give the wafers onto which the microcircuits will be fabricated.
