Abstract
Antimony containing III-V semiconducting compounds are particularly attractive for the fabrication of a wide variety of electronic and optoelectronic devices such as photo detectors operating in the long wave infrared wavelength (12-32µm) range. The production of epi quality GaSb wafers still remains one of the important problems for rapid commercialization of GaSb devices. Sinmat Inc. proposes a novel chemical mechanical smoothening and passivation process that is expected to lead to ultra-smooth (<2) GaSb epi-ready passivated surface in a reliable consistent manner.
