Transmutation Si-doping Facilities - "Click here for details"

This database contains 35 research reactors performing Si doping distributed over 22 Member States.

To meet the growing demand from the electronic industry, research reactors are able to perform Neutron Transmutation Doping (NTD) of Si, and therefore to produce uniform silicon ingots doped with phosphorus, which is created by neutrons interacting with silicon and followed by a natural decay of the reaction product.
