http://www.siliconfareast.com/crystaldefects.htmLike anything else in this world, crystals inherently possess imperfections, or what we often refer to as 'crystalline defects'. The presence of most of these crystalline defects is undesirable in silicon wafers, although certain types of 'defects' are essential in semiconductor manufacturing. Engineers in the semiconductor industry must be aware of, if not knowledgeable on, the various types of silicon crystal defects, since these defects can affect various aspects of semiconductor manufacturing - from production yields to product reliability.
What he is saying that the few he has tried work so far. I am so not impressed with this sort of shabby approach.
