Gallium Nitride (GaN) Epitaxial Grown on Al2O3 Substrates

GaN is a binary III/V direct bandgap semiconductor commonly used in bright light-emitting diodes since the 1990s. The compound is a very hard material that has a Wurtzite crystal structure. Its wide band gap of 3.4 eV affords it special properties for applications in:

  • optoelectronic
  • high-power devices
  • high-frequency devices

For example, GaN is the substrate which makes violet (405 nm) laser diodes possible, without use of nonlinear optical frequency-doubling. Its sensitivity to ionizing radiation is low (like other group III nitrides), making it a suitable material for solar cell arrays for satellites. Military and space applications could also benefit as devices have shown stability in radiation environments.

Gallium Nitride transistors can operate at much hotter temperatures and work at much higher voltages than gallium arsenide (GaAs) transistors, they make ideal power amplifiers at microwave frequencies.

gan semiconductor


Gallium Nitride, otherwise known by its chemical symbols as GaN, is a the ideal substance for radio energy amplification, which can work to enhance devices like radars and jammers. In past years, silicon was the substrate of choice for power electronics, but due to advancements in research, GaN has superseded silicon. The reason for this change is that GaN is considered  a wide-bandgap material. This means that it has a high breakdown voltage and excellent efficiency when performing at high temperatures. If you need a UniversityWafer product that will provide you with high quality and reliable results we suggest using our Gallium Nitride substrates.
