3.2 Silicon Production

3.2.1 Single Crystals and Wafers

This is an easy subchapter because the major points concerning single crystalline Silicon production for microelectronics (and some other uses) - from making the raw (or metallurgical grade) Si, poly-Si for crystal growth, single crystals, and wafers - have been covered in the Hyperscript "Electronic Materials" and here we provide just a link to the starting chapter.
In what follows in the next subchapter, we will look briefly at methods to produce Si for applications other then microelectronics - which means mostly solar cells.
