Silicon and Germanium semiconductor mixtures used in component manufacturing?

  • #1
Summary:
Si + Ge + ? + ? =
Can Silicon and Germanium semiconductors mixture (chemical reaction) with some other chemical elements (if required) assist in creating new and existing robust electronic components?

Si + Ge + ? + ? =

Can this assist in quantum computing?

Mentor note: Changed the level from "A" to none.
You indicated an A (Advanced) level for this post, indicating that you are at a post-graduate level or beyond. You should have a good idea how semiconductor devices work. What other elements are routinely added? What do you think the answers to your questions are?

Possible other elements could be gallium, arsenide etc.

I am guessing from your reply that you have no significant background in either semiconductors or quantum theory. I suggest you start by reading the Wikipedia article Semiconductor, and then following the links it contains to the relevant sub-topics (Doping, e.g.). There are many online references as well, or you can pick up an inexpensive used copy of this excellent textbook: Sze, Physics of Semiconductor Devices.

To understand quantum computing, you need a solid course in quantum mechanics. You might check out the offerings from MIT Open Courseware.
