SEMI M23 - Specification for Polished Monocrystalline Indium Phosphide Wafers
This Standard was technically approved by the Compound Semiconductor Materials Global Technical Committee. This edition was approved for publication by the global Audits and Reviews Subcommittee on June 28, 2017. Available at www.semiviews.org and www.semi.org in February 2018; originally published in 1993; previously published August 2011.
NOTICE: This Document was reapproved with minor editorial changes.
These specifications cover the substrate requirements for monocrystalline high-purity indium phosphide wafers used in semiconductor and electronic device manufacturing. Dimensional and crystallographic orientation characteristics are the only standardized properties set forth below.
A complete purchase specification may require that additional physical, electrical, and bulk properties be defined. These properties are listed together with test methods suitable for determining their magnitude where such procedures are documented.
These specifications are directed specifically to indium phosphide wafers with one or both sides polished. Unpolished wafers or wafers with epitaxial films are not covered; however, purchasers of such wafers may find these specifications helpful in defining their requirements.
The material is single crystal indium phosphide (InP) having a cubic zinc blend structure and the following properties:
5.869 A at 27°C
1.351 eV at 27°C
For reference purposes SI (System International, commonly called metric) units shall be used.
