We propose a novel growth technique to produce low defect density GaN substrates - misfit dislocations will be greatly reduced and the defects due to thermal expansion mismatches will be eliminated. In Phase I the feasibility of the technology will be demonstrated. In Phase II, the process will be scalled and the substrates will be used to fabricate bright blue LEDs in collaboration with Hewlett-Packard. In Phase III, the LEDs will be commercialized and the technology will be extended to GaN based electronics and lasers.
