fashioning the compound semiconductor gallium nitride

To get green, manufacturers have had to resort to optical trickery, such as frequency doubling, which entails a lot of extra equipment and decreased energy efficiency. Finally, after a worldwide technological race, researchers have found ways to fashion the compound semiconductor gallium nitride (and its close chemical cousins) into lasers that emit at just the point in the green spectrum that manufacturers desire.

So, we're in the green, but we're not yet in the money. To make the new laser commercially successful, much more work is needed to improve manufacturing yields and other important metrics. But the hardest part of the quest is now over, and when the long-sought green lasers finally hit the market, they will have important repercussions for the television, computer, and handheld industry. All these devices will show off better, livelier colors, using more compact, energy-efficient light sources.

Connecting the Compound Semiconductor Industry

The 13th CS International conference builds on the strengths of its predecessors, with around 40 leaders from industry and academia delivering presentations that fall within five key themes: Ultrafast Communication; Making Headway with the MicroLED; Taking the Power from Silicon, New Vectors for the VCSEL, and Ultra-wide Bandgap Devices.

Delegates attending these sessions will gain insight into device technology, find out about the current status and the roadmap for the compound semiconductor industry, and discover the latest advances in tools and processes that will drive up fab yields and throughputs.
