Technological breakthrough in silicon photonics

Abstract:
A technique for tailormaking silicon nanocrystals on 4-inch wafers has been developed and submitted for patent (German patent number: DE 101 04 193 A 1) by Dr. Margit Zacharias and colleagues of the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics, Saale, Germany. This process makes possible the cost-effective manufacture of high-density arrays of silicon clusters or nanocrystals.
