Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 11a
Budget: 08/01/16 - 07/31/18

Gallium nitride substrates are the key to achieving highend, energyefficient semiconductor devices such as power switches, laser diodes and light emitting diodes (LEDs). Significant effort has been exerted to develop costeffective nearequilibrium ammonothermal (NEAT) growth of bulk GaN crystals; however, due to extreme hardness and chemical stab...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 11a
Budget: 06/08/15 - 03/07/16

Significant effort has been exerted to develop cost-effective ammonothermal growth of bulk GaN crystals; however, due to extreme hardness and chemical stability, the wafering process for bulk GaN crystals has not been established yet. Currently, chemical mechanical polishing CMP) to achieve damage-free, atomically-flat wafer surface is ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: NM-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will address the coloration problem of gallium nitride (GaN) grown by the ammonothermal method. Despite its promise to reduce the cost of GaN wafers by 90%, the ammonothermal growth technique has a coloration problem which impedes the use of the resulting substrates for high-brightness ligh...
