Sil'tronix product application (March)

Silicon dot comparison

For more than 40 years, Sil’tronix ST develops and manufactures valuable products regarding your specific needs.Charlotte-Le-Mesle-Photographe-Sil-Tronix-ST-Wafer-Sputtering-Target-1.png

For many years, Sil’tronix ST provides a large

quantity of silicon pieces for photonic applications.

Hereafter, you will find a comparison between a Sil’tronix ST competitor (named X) and the device we provide.

Sil'tronix sample

  1. Focus on the intensity provided

The device X shows an intensity within the range of 2 500 charges per minute. The silicon device we provide admits 300 000 charges per minute.

=> A larger amount of charges mean a greatest amount of (111) plans properly oriented with the Sil’tronix ST.

          2. (FWHM=full width at half maximum)

The FWHM is lower on the Sil’tronix ST product than the X one. It is the reason we have a better distinction for both peaks on the Sil’tronix ST sample than the X.

These two peaks come from K alpha and K beta lines produced by the copper target bombed through electrons to generate the X signal which is going to drop on the sample to analyse to be diffracted or not. In certain case, the line K is filtered in order to get only a peak (it is more intuitive). In any case there is still a trace of K, especially when the plate has a good quality.

> The result from the customer is a diffraction 100 times better than the X plate.


The incidence of adverse effects and pathogen resistance encountered with small molecule antibiotics is increasing. As such, there is mounting focus on immunogene therapy to augment the immune system’s response to infection and accelerate healing. A major obstacle to in vivo gene delivery is that the primary uptake pathway, cellular endocytosis, results in extracellular excretion and lysosomal degradation of genetic material. Here we show a nanosystem that bypasses endocytosis and achieves potent gene knockdown efficacy. Porous SIlicon...
