Summary on Grant Application Form
A collaborative programme is proposed to explore a novel and realistic approach to the production of Gallium Nitride based Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting lasers (GaN-VCSELS). The concept involves epitaxial layer overgrowth above a patterned dielectric Bragg mirror. This will produce low-loss, high-reflectance bottom mirror elements for the VCSEL devices and define the mode area, but equally important, will allow overgrowth of a high-quality GaN/GaInN/AlGaN active region and microcavity, free from threading discolations. To allow this approach to be fully explore this proposal brings together partners with expertise in III-Nitride physics, epitaxial growth, semiconductor device design, VCSEL technology and device processing. It is further enhanced by significant commitments of support from world-leading industrial and academic external collaborators.
