Silicon, both for its physical semiconductor properties and for
The electronics industry, in just a little more than half a century, has developed efficient silicon processing procedures that have enabled industries to effectively exploit the element, offering large quantities of raw material to the system with an excellent quality-price ratio. As a consequence, the market was also able to benefit from of considerable advantages, consider for example the reduction in the cost of electronic devices.
Crystalline silicon is classified as:
• polycrystalline silicon: the lattice is a set of consolidated sublattices; the surface of the cell has a color tending towards blue with iridescent reflections.The ordered structure of the material, in which the atoms are positioned at the vertices of a three-dimensional lattice, reduces the barriers that could hinder the passage of the electrons and therefore of current. These types of cells, in the current- generating process, guarantee the lowest possible expenditure and loss of energy.
