Welcome to the wafer calculator

The user selects (i) the shape and dimensions of a wafer, (ii) the wafer material (e.g., Si, GaAs), and (iii) the conversion efficiency at a particular incident illumination intensity.

The wafer calculator then calculates (i) the area and volume of the wafer, (ii) the mass of the wafer, and (iii) the output power and power per gram.
