Polycrystalline Silicon

  • Polycrystalline silicon, also called polysilicon, is a material consisting of small silicon crystals.
  • It differs from single-crystal silicon, used for electronics and solar cells, and from amorphous silicon, used for thin film devices and solar cells.
  • Polysilicon is a key component for integrated circuit and central processing unit manufacturers such as AMD and Intel.
  • At the component level, polysilicon has long been used as the conducting gate material in MOSFET and CMOS processing technologies.
  • Polysilicon manufacturing market is in a very fast growth mode.
