What is Silicon Wafer ? :

A silicon wafer is a thin slice of crystalline silicon, primarily used as a substrate for the fabrication of semiconductor devices such as integrated circuits (ICs). Its characteristics include high purity, stable chemical properties, and precise dimensional control. Silicon wafers are generally manufactured through intricate processes that involve the growth of single-crystal silicon ingots, which are then sliced, polished, and cleaned to specific standards. The working mechanism of a silicon wafer involves its usage as a base upon which microelectronic devices are built. It serves as a physical platform for the circuitry components that harness electrical signals, contributing to the functionality of everything from mobile phones to medical equipment.
