Innovation : very thin Wafer

Dear Customer,

Sil’Tronix ST is proud to announce a new specification to our portfolio : thin silicon wafer !

Thanks to new improvements in our silicon wafer manufacturing process, we are able to produce thin silicon wafer
We achieved to take the thickness down to 90µm for 4’’ wafer and to 300µm for 6’’ wafer. 
By doing this, we are able to keep the best wafer quality, i.e. TTV under 10 and roughness by 1nm.  

Furthermore, Sil’Tronix ST is able to provide any thickness (from 90µm to 3cm) for any diameter (up to 6’’). If you need a non-standard thickness, please send us a request for quotation ! This is also, of course, possible for small quantities.

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.
