32 Transmutation Si-doping Facilities
 
This database contains 32 Research Reactors performing Si doping distributed over 21 Member States.
Note that this view includes Reactors of the following status: ()
OPERATIONAL, TEMPORARY SHUTDOWN, UNDER CONSTRUCTION, PLANNED

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.
