High-Quality, Low-Cost Bulk Gallium Nitride Substrates

MEMC Electronic Materials, Inc. - St. Peters, MO

Efficient manufacturing of gallium nitride (GaN) could reduce the cost of and improve the output for light–emitting diodes, solid-state lighting, laser displays, and other power electronics. Use of GaN–a semi–conductor material–holds the potential to reduce lighting energy use by 75%, electric drive motor energy use for consumer applications by 50%, electric motor energy used for transportation by 60%, and energy for information technology infrastructure power delivery by 20%.
