What are Float Zone Silicon Wafers Used For?

Float-zone (FZ) silicon wafers also called undoped or intrinsic are used in applications that require purity that is much higher than Czochralski (CZ) grown silicon.

Examples include:

  • Power devices & detectors
  • Highly transparent to terahertz radiationcy, so it's used to fabricate optical components - lenses and windows
  • Satellite solar arrays

We have a large selection in stock, but we can customize any order in small and large quantities.

What NTD Float Zone Silicon Wafers Used to Make Diodes?

Researchers use the following silicon specs to fabricate Schottky barrier and heterojunction diodes:

100mm NTD FZ wafer Resistivity: 10 Ohm-mm Orientation: <111>

What Silicon Wafer is Transparent to the Infrared (IR)

Silicon wafers, especially those very high resistivity, are transparent to IR. I attach article in pdf format, providing many details on the si transparency subject. If you need silicon which is less IR transparent, we recommend using highly doped CZ wafers.

When researchers need the higher purity Silicon, they use FZ Silicon substrates instead of  Czochralski grown silicon.

Or simply put, Float Zone Si is most ly used low volume applications that require high-efficiency while CZ Silicon is used for high volume, less expensive applications.
