Question about Silicon Polymer conductivity

Recommended Posts

Silicone is the polymer, -(OSiRR')n-. Silicon is the element. Silicon electronic light emitters are inefficient for the electronic structure of silicon. Single crystal silicon carbide IR and visible thermal emitters are patented. Elemental silicon's low melting point makes it an inefficient black body visible emissive filament. Elemental silicon's transparency to IR makes it a poor IR black body emissive filament (First Law of Thermodynamics). Silicon contracts when it melts, like water ice.
