Global Silicon on Insulator (SOI) Market Overview:
A silicon-on-insulator (SOI) structure consists of a single crystalline silicon layer separated from the bulk substrate by a thin insulator layer. The insulator in SOI wafers is usually always a thermal silicon oxide (SiO2) layer, with a silicon wafer as the substrate. The silicon sheet can be very thin (50 nm for fully depleted transistors) or tens of micrometers thick, depending on the application. Similarly, the thickness of buried oxide varies from tens of nanometers to several micrometers.
