‘Most important’ semiconductor since silicon

Abstract:
Scientists at the University of Cambridge, UK, are developing Gallium Nitride (GaN) devices described as “the most important semiconductors since silicon”. These are said to open the door to next generation products and devices such as high intensity blue LEDs and high precision lasers. Because tiny clusters of GaN containing only a few hundred atoms can be grown, creating “quantum dots”, the semiconductor material also opens up exciting opportunities in nanotechnology and in particular the development of quantum computers.
