In those early days, the essential approach was zone-refining, invented at the Bell Laboratories by a chemical engineer, William Pfann: It involved the passage of successive narrow molten zones along an ingot, gradually sweeping impurities to one end. For a decade at least, zone-refining was the inescapable technique for achieving ultrapure, crystalline germanium, at a time when this semiconductor was the material of choice for transistors. However, this technique was not applicable to silicon owing to its reactivity with the walls of the zone-refining chamber material at silicon’s melting point of 1414◦ C.

They leveraged this by focusing on memories, which Moore believed had huge market potential and could be more easily integrated – both in terms of putting large numbers of transistors on silicon and in integrating 5 See also [11, Chap. 3, pp. 53–56]. 6 He was also convinced that the only way to compete effectively was by making the silicon more valuable than the package, offsetting the natural advantage in packaging that Fairchild, Motorola and TI had. The strategy worked. Intel became the memory IC market leader in the early 1970s.
