SIMON’S DREAM

Simon was resting in the shade of a leafy willow tree on their lawn, one sunny afternoon. Simon heard someone sighing, but when he looked around, no one was visible.

He heard the ‘sigh’ again, and this time he sat up. To his amazement he saw a little goblin perched on a rosebush nearby. The little chap looked so miserable that Simon asked him what was wrong.

“Oh!” mumbled the goblin, “our king is very sad because his only daughter, the princess Meredith, is ill. She needs some hair from a brown and white dog’s tail to cure her.”

“I am able to help,” said Simon. “I’ll fetch Webster for you now. You may cut / take the hair from his tail.”

“Thank you,” said the goblin gratefully .

“Time is of the essence. A wicked fairy has cast a spell over our princess. If she does not receive the hair before the sun sets, she will surely die!”

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
