A wafer, also called a slice or substrate, is a thin slice of semiconductor material used in electronics for the fabrication of integrated circuits. There are many different types of wafers on the market, one of which is the ultra flat wafer. Let’s take a look at what ultra flat wafers are and where you can find them.
Silicon wafer thickness is measured in microns and ultra flat wafers are those under 200 microns thick. The thickness of a wafer determines what kind of integrated circuits or whether or not the wafer is an ideal for supporting mounting cells.
Ultra flat wafers are used in a variety of applications. Most commonly, ultra-flat silicon wafers are utilized in the electronics industry and have a range of biological uses as well. There is also a place for ultra flat wafers in microfabrication as substrates for thin film research or biological substrates.
