Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Wide bandgap semiconductors, made from such materials as GaN, SiC, diamond, and ZnSe, are undergoing a strong resurgence in recent years, principally because of their direct bandgaps, which give them a huge advantage over the indirect gap Sic As an example, more than 10 million blue LEDs using this technology are sold each month, and new, high brightness (15 lumens per watt), long-life white LEDs are under development with the potential to replace incandescent bulbs in many situations. This book provides readers with a broad overview of this rapidly expanding technology, bringing them up to speed on new discoveries and commercial applications. It provides specific technical applications of key processes such as laser diodes, LEDs, and very high temperature electronic controls on engines, focusing on doping, etching, oxidation passivation, growth techniques and more.

Book News Annotation:

Overviews wide band gap semiconductors made from GaN, SiC, diamond and ZnSe for commercial applications in high temperature/high power electronics and blue/green light emission. The 11 contributions discuss growth and contacts of II-VI compounds, processing techniques, and materials analysis. Potential uses in HDTV, power conditioning devices, and high power microwave are also explored. Example topics are epitaxial growth of II-VI compounds by MOVPE, dry etching of SiC, plasma etching of III-V nitrides, ion implantation, rare earth impurities, hydrogen incorporation, and secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) analysis.

Synopsis:

The first available textual reference to treat the manufacture and use of high temperature/high power family semiconductors, this book details the growth, processing and device applications for the wide gap semiconductor technology. Covers new applications in high temperature/high power electronics for power switching avionics and defense short wavelength emitters.
