A UK-funded research project
We aim to develop advanced fabrication processes for Gallium
Nitride (GaN) and related materials (AlN and InN) for the
21st Century manufacturing industries.
The III-Nitrides are functional materials that underpin the emerging global solid state lighting and power electronics industries. But their properties enable far wider applications: sensing by photonic, electronic and piezoelectric effects and in non-linear optics. Many applications of these functions are enhanced, even enabled by creating three dimensional nanostructures.
Therefore we aim to develop nanostructuring processes on a manufacturing scale to unlock the potential of these properties of the III-Nitride semiconductors in a range of innovative materials and devices.
