Silicon Dendrites
TI number: G00401

This item has no technological significance other than to illustrate the random growth of silicon dendrites and the imagination of an unknown technician.

After completing the growth of a crystal in the Semiconductor Research and Development Lab (SRDL), the technician controlled the pullout to allow the growth of dendrites to use the melt remaining in the crucible.
