The Taiwanese researchers have been honoured for their novel gallium nitride LED that can last 420 minutes, which they say is 140 minutes longer than traditional LEDs. With its compact size and high energy-saving properties, it is ideally suited to backlighting applications.
The academic institution has purchased an Oxford Instruments plasma etch tool which will be used for a number of applications including optoelectronics, mm-wave & terahertz, lab-on-a-chip and photovoltaics research.
The implant-free quantum-well (IF-QW) devices with a buried SiGe channel have good electrostatic gate control and a low variability of key electrical parameters, significantly improving device performance.
Conventional GaN HEMTs are excellent devices over a wide frequency range. However, for great performance at really high speeds, it's best to switch from the standard gallium face to a nitrogen one, according to UCSB's Umesh Mishra.
The purchase of the supplier of professional lighting applications opens up new growth potential for LED applications. Osram has also appointed Klaus-Günter Vennemann as head of the business unit Professional Lighting.
The pollution control equipment manufacturer is teaming up with the vacuum equipment and service provider to offer complete, turnkey vacuum and abatement solutions for the compound semiconductor, LED and solar industries.
Vertically integrated refiner and producer of high purity tellurium, tellurium-based compounds and other metals, Apollo Solar has developed a new tellurium based material for use in thermal exchange technology at oil transportation stations.
