Silicon monochromator manufacturing process

Sil’Tronix Silicon technologies as a silicon wafer manufacturer own every single step of the manufacturing process, from the pulling oven to the polishing station.

Our team is also experienced in the design and the full processing of optical wafers, parts or crystal silicon dices for analysors, channel cuts, mirrors, monochromators for synchrotrons.

Therefore, we are able to adapt our manufacturing process to produce special silicon parts as monochromator. This silicon products have no standard dimension: there can be round (diameter from 10 mm up to 100 mm), square or rectangular and can be thicker than 1 cm. They are produced according customer specifications.



Over the past 20 years, scientists have been developing metamaterials, or materials that don't occur naturally and whose mechanical properties result from their designed structure rather than their chemical composition. They allow researchers to create materials with specific properties and shapes. Metamaterials are still not widely used in everyday objects, but that could soon change.

A group of researchers led by Stanislav Evlashin, a senior research scientist at the Skoltech Center for Design, Manufacturing and Materials (CDMM), demonstrated a simple and 100% efficient method of converting silicon wafers into nanoparticles in an aqueous solution. This discovery can help find an environmentally friendly way of silicon recycling without using toxic chemicals.
