We propose to develop and commercialize GaN-based blue and near UV light integrated optoelectronics technology for modulation, switching, and distribution of blue and near-UV light. This technology will include integrated optical waveguides, splitters,and electrooptical modulators integrated with LEDs and photodetectors. We will investigate waveguiding in thin GaN, AlN, AlGaN, and AlGaInN films grown by SET, Inc. on different substrates. We will evaluate light coupling using commercial LEDs and bluehigh-brightness LEDs fabricated by SET, Inc. We will explore the integration design of GaN and GaN/AlGaN photodetectors developed by SET, Inc. The initial modulator work will investigate and implement an acousto-optical modulator based on GaN technology.The technology evaluation will rely on modeling and simulation using our optoelectronic CAD tool - simulator called photonic AIM-SpiceBiological and chemical substance detection and identification is very important for medical, biological applications, aswell as for chemical and automotive industry. Integrated blue optoelectronics sensors have promise for the development of cheap and reliable GaN-based sensor systems drastically reducing cost, improving reliability, and safety.
