About us

01. A propos.png

Our mission is to support our customers within the success of their projects throughout the manufacturing of customized silicon products.

The major principles of Sil’tronix Silicon Technologies are:

  1. A human adventure achieved with 3 persons highly specialised:

  • Serge Petri, PhD, who has spent its entire carrier within silicon industry.
  • Didier Pique, PhD, who used to work for more than 15 years for Applied Material as European research manager.
  • Hervé Poirel, who has started up companies providing services and machines for semiconductor industry for the past 20 years.

Our founders have built the company on a simple idea: participate to the research, the comprehension of our environment as well as the development of future technologies.

  1. The provision of a customized implement

  • Sil’tronix ST makes available its 2000 m² equipment comprising a class 100 clean room allowing the manufacturing of customized silicon products.
  1. A strategic geographical position

  • The company is established between Grenoble and Geneva, a suitable area for technologic and human exchanges.
  1. Core competencies

  • A team has been dedicated (Doctors, Engineers and technicians) to answer as well as it is technologically possible to do to your specific requirements mentioned throughout your topics (research, development, …)
  1. Production dedicated to the research centres

  • We produce your requirements on demand, regarding specificities such as low volume. Whole of our products are manufactured internally in order to maintain a reliable consistency. The follow up is entirely made through our technical and human resources. Therefore the risks linked to sub-contractors is extremely reduced.
  1. Solutions answering to unique needs

  • Siltronix ST has the aspiration to be not only a manufacturer of silicon wafers, silicon crystals or optical products but a true partner in your success. We seek to prioritize the respect of your technical specification even if it is unique in order to maximize the chance of success.
  1. Our customers, our source of inspiration

  • Regarding the new projects brought from our customers as well as technological discoveries, we are constantly under technology intelligence to provide you the last technical solutions in order to afford the best qualitative products to succeed in your projects.

For more than 40 years, Sil’tronix ST manufactures customized silicon wafers regarding your own specifications.

From the raw material to growth the monocrystalline ingot up to the cleaning process, each step are handled within our factory in order to provide the reliability requested to ensure the achievement of your topics.

This video aims to show the whole capabilities provided to manufacture your specific Si wafers:

Crystal characterized with X-ray topography from Sil’tronix ST and another supplier.

The topographers are recorded to a 20 keV photon energy and show a 40 mm long section of the 120 mm long crystals installed as a second crystal in a double crystal monochromator.

Both crystals show a very good crystallinity. The Si crystal from Sil’tronix ST is almost free of defects, while the one from the other supplier shows scratches on the surface, most probably due to the polishing process.
