BluGlass Gets $300k Epitaxy Order

Australian epitaxy firm to work with key customer on specialty LED application

Australian epitaxy firm BluGlass has announced that one of its key customers has committed to an order for around $300,000 of foundry development to be delivered over the next six months.

This customer is developing a specialty LED application for which BluGlass will be supplying the green and blue LED wafers.

BluGlass managing director Giles Bourne said: "This order from one single customer for epitaxial development is the largest foundry order that the company has received to date. It forms part of our strategy of growing the custom epitaxy and revenue generating service part of our business over the coming months. We see this large repeat order as a testament to our team's ability to deliver custom epitaxy at an industry competitive standard."

BluGlass (winner of the 2013 Australian Technologies Competition) has developed a new process using Remote Plasma Chemical Vapour Deposition (RPCVD) to grow semiconductor materials such as GaN and InGaN for the production of high efficiency devices such as next generation LEDs.

The RPCVD technology, because of its low temperature and flexible nature,  is said to offer many potential benefits over existing technologies including higher efficiency, lower cost, substrate flexibility including GaN on silicon and greater scalability. 

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
