Silicon consulting services are provided by Ted Ciszek who has over 45 years of experience conducting R&D on growth of silicon materials for IC, power, detector, and photovoltaic (PV) use, Si characterization, and behavior and effects of impurities and defects on silicon material quality and performance.  

We have our own on-site facilities for lab-scale float zoning (FZ), CZ growth, directional solidification, experimental growth, and silicon characterization which can be applied to experimental feedstock evaluation and new growth concepts.

In this site, you can learn more about Siliconsultant, access publication references, examine past accomplishments and research activities, and provide feedback. Check out the Silicon Info page as well, where you will find a vast collection of  interesting facts about crystalline Si materials.
