GROWTH OF GAN SINGLE-CRYSTAL BOULES

AbstractThe proposed project will produce single-crystal boules of GaN that can be sliced and sold as high-quality substrates for the epitaxial growth of differently-doped GaN or of other lattice-matching crystals, or as wafers for use in optoelectronic and acoustooptic applications. The feasibility of GaN boules will be tested on a small scale: to produce cm3-sized crystals. The process will be scles up during Phase II, leadin gto commercial production within two years. A similar technique can be used to generate other nitrides in single-crystal form: A1N, InN, TiN, ErN, and possible their alloys.
