Abstract
Kyma Technologies will lead a team of researchers in the development and optimization of bulk GaN crystal growth processes for fabricating non-polar GaN substrates. Processes for extended growth of GaN crystals in the c-axis direction will be developed to fabricate non-polar and semi-polar substrates of selected orientations. This approach will be compared to heteroepitaxial growth in non-polar directions on non-native seed materials. Bulk non-polar substrates will be demonstrated and characterized, and an in-depth cost analysis of the manufacturing approach for large area substrates will be undertaken.
