Abstract
In this STTR program, Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) along with the Electro Optics Center - Pennsylvania State University will apply its hybrid Hydride Metal-Organic Vapor Phase Epitaxy (HOVPE) based growth methods to produce optimum quality AlxGa1-xN on AlN substrates. The Phase I goal is to convincingly demonstrate the advantages of the HOVPE technique to produce high quality, epitaxial AlGaN material, with a concentration on decreased dislocation density. Successful conclusion of this work will produce device quality AlGaN layers for high electron mobility transistors, high power electronics and optical components.
