Summary on Grant Application Form
Support for an MOVPE growth, characterisation, physics and device programme on wide band gap III-V nitride materials is requested. The work will be aimed towards the application of such materials as UV-blue light emitters and for high temperature electronics applications. The growth will be performed using both the proven high temperature (1100C) NH3-(CH4)3Ga,Al reactions and also employing novel low temperature (600-800C) precursors developed by EPICHEM Ltd. Growth will be carried out principally on sapphire substrates, but also on lattice matched GaN substrates, again adding a strong element of novelty to the proposed programme. The proposal programme will include MOVPE growth, optical spectroscopy and LED and heterojunction bipolar transistor device fabrication.
