.[edit] a single wafer (electronics) $100k, or did you mean a boule (crystal)? Do you have a source for that one?--Joel 01:54, 16 July 2005 (UTC)

Heh, you caught me. I was referring to each wafer, which can produce dozens of chips each; but the cost number is 3rd-hand hearsay. I'll look for a source. :) - Bantman 02:37, July 16, 2005 (UTC)
No worries. I actually think the price of the boule is more important for this article, since a lot of the cost of a wafer is cutting and polishing it so precisely and in such a clean environment. The information you gave would go well on the wafer article, however. This is a good start for an article all around; kudos. Some day I'll mention gemstones and turbine blades, if you don't beat me to it.--Joel 16:12, 16 July 2005 (UTC)
Thanks for the kudos! It's always nice to have one's work recognized. I've scratched the cost estimate; I think you're right that it's most likely in the cutting and polishing, and not growing the boule. A cursory internet search seems to confirm that prices for raw single-crystal silicon isn't all that much. - Bantman 19:40, July 16, 2005 (UTC)

crystalline copper[edit]

Why is the link treated like an external one? --Shanedidona 16:01, 28 November 2006 (UTC)


Article reformatted - uses now not a bulleted list - removed references to "monocrystalline copper" - It requires a better reference than some marketting material to prove this. (also Crystalline copper has issues too)

Should the manufacturing be covered in the individual uses sections - as the different making methods differ a lot?FengRail (talk) 20:04, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

merge crystalline copper[edit]

Suggest merging what parts of crystalline copper can be shown to be true into this article.FengRail (talk) 20:20, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
