Keywords:substrate  layer transfer 

The production of engineered gallium nitride (GaN) substrates is being taken up by the joint partnership of engineered substrates supplier Soitec Group and compound semiconductor materials provider Sumitomo Electric Industries Ltd.

The alliance will draw on Sumitomo's GaN wafer manufacturing technology and Soitec's Smart Cut layer transfer technology to transfer ultra-thin GaN layers from a single GaN wafer to produce multiple, engineered GaN substrates that retain the original quality of the GaN wafer.

The companies said the alliance will promote the use of GaN substrates in applications like high-brightness LEDs, as well as electric power devices in hybrid and full electric vehicles.
