We propose to demonstrate and advance several key aspects of our novel, scalable ammonothermal technology for growth of high quality single crystal gallium nitride. Specifically, we propose to demonstrate a high growth rate and high crystalline quality, to design and analyze a pilot-scale reactor, and to construct and validate a quantitative model to describe the fluid dynamics of the growth environment. BENEFIT: Advance bulk GaN crystal growth technology to the threshold for commercialization. Bulk GaN is an enabling technology for a range of device applications, including light emitters, photodetectors, and high performance electronics.
