Kyma Taps into GaN Growth Equipment Market with Its 100 HVPE System

Kyma Technologies has tapped into the market for GaN crystal growth equipment. The firm’s GaN crystal growth system is based on the hydride vapour phase epitaxy (HVPE) growth process which is a proven high growth rate approach for producing high purity crystalline compound semiconductor materials including GaN, GaAs, InP, and CdS. HVPE is the dominant process used today for production of free-standing GaN substrates and recently has been used by Kyma and others to produce high quality GaN on sapphire templates and GaN on silicon templates. HVPE g...

Kyma Makes a Breakthrough on 10” AlN-on-sapphire Template

Kyma Technologies Inc of Raleigh, NC, USA, has made a breakthrough on a 10-inch diameter AlN-on-sapphire template using its patented plasma vapor deposition of nanocolumns (PVDNC) technology. The PVDNC AlN templates are chosen by manufacturers of blue, green and white LEDs as a replacement for bare and patterned sapphire substrates. The 250mm (10-inch) sapphire substrate was provided by Monocrystal Inc of Stavropol, Russia, which provides sapphire products and metallization pastes to the semiconductor, optical, and photovoltaic industries. According ...

Kyma Adds n+ Bulk GaN Substrates

Kyma’s  new n+ GaN substrate product line will boast a bulk resistivity specification of  < 0.02 Ω -cm, which is two orders of magnitude lower in resistivity than Kyma’s previously offered n-type GaN. What’s more, Kyma has successfully produced n+ bulk GaN wafers with measured carrier concentrations of up to 6 x 1018cm-3and corresponding bulk resistivities of < 0.005 Ω –cm.  The firm’s n-type GaN product is still being offered and, for distinction, is being relabelled as n- GaN (“nminus” GaN). I...
