 Silicon is one of the most significant inorganic materials. Polysilicon or polycrystalline silicon comprises of numerous silicon crystals. Being one of the purest elements in the world, the purity of polysilicon can be as high as 99.9999999+%. Depending upon the purity levels, three types of polysilicon are manufactured viz. Electronic-grade Silicon (9N), Medium-grade Silicon (6-7N), and Upgraded Metallurgical-grade Silicon (>5N). On the industry front, polysilicon is required by 2 major sectors viz. the solar PV industry and the semiconductor industry.
