BluGlass And HC SemiTek To Collaborate On LEDs

Companies to explore remote plasma chemical vapour deposition for green LEDs and high brightness LEDs

Australian technology innovator, BluGlass will be collaborating with HC SemiTek, a Chinese LED chip manufacturer, to review the advantages of using BluGlass' Remote Plasma Chemical Vapour Deposition (RPCVD) for green LEDs.

They will also explore low temperature deposition of AlN to use in high brightness LEDs. The Chinese manufacturer will supply 4 inch wafers to BluGlass to deposit RPCVD films and HC SemiTek will fabricate the LED devices for testing.

BluGlass' RPCVD technology is a low-temperature manufacturing platform for producing higher performing devices such as LEDs and power electronics at lower cost. BluGlass holds a number of patents in key semiconductor markets including the US, China, Europe and Japan.

BluGlass managing director Giles Bourne said: "It is fantastic to see the commercial interest building in the RPCVD technology capability. We now have three industry evaluations in place with companies that have respected leadership positions in their relative markets.

This forms part of our key strategy to complete our industry acceptance phase as we progress towards commercialising our proprietary RPCVD technology."

This agreement is expected to take several iterations to demonstrate the performance capability, and will involve BluGlass' new RPCVD chamber designed to improve the uniformity of the RPCVD deposition. This chamber is expected to be commissioned in the coming months.

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.
