SMI awarded DOE Phase II SBIR to develop p-type ZnO
Posted on February 02, 2006
Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) has been awarded a Phase II SBIR by the Department of Energy to develop p-type doping of ZnO. ZnO has shown great promise as an alternative to GaN as a blue light emitter.
Critical to demonstrating blue light emission in this material system is development of p-n junctions. While n-type material is easily achieved, p-type material has been very elusive with only a few scattered reports and with repeatability issues.
CVD is believed to be one of the best approaches to achieving p-type doping because of its ability to produce high quality films, greatly vary the chemistry and produce atomically abrupt layers when needed. For this program SMI has built a dedicated MOCVD system which it operates in-house.
About Structured Materials Industries:
Structured Materials Industries, Incorporated is focused on being the leader in Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) and related technologies. SMI offers for sale: systems, components, materials, and process development services. SMI has an in-house applications laboratory featuring multi-reactor deposition systems and analytic capabilities, has developed a range of strategic partnerships to develop and implement MOCVD technology and looks forward to continuing to grow and expand upon mutually advantageous relationships.
