Research Topics


This Phase I SBIR project addresses the development of novel solid state Zinc Oxide-based light emitting device. These devices will find widespread application in civilian and military markets. The objective of the Phase I effort is to explore CdZnO/ZnO material system for UV emitters. SVT Associates will be utilizing innovative approaches for material epitaxial growth p-type doping and device design. The emphases will be made on attaining stable processes for homo and heteroepitaxy of p-type materials. We expect that at the end of Phase I program a prototype light emitting device will be available.
