Caption

Silicon chips on wafer. Gloved hand holding a radiation resistant wafer containing numerous integrated circuits or chips (squares). These chips are for use in outer space, for example on satellites. The wafer is made of silicon imprinted on a sapphire base. Its chips can operate despite exposure to the radiation from the Sun and other astronomical objects. Normal silicon-only chips are rendered useless by radioactivity.
