Kyma demonstrates 10-inch diameter aluminum nitride on sapphire template product
Kyma Technologies, Inc., a leading supplier of crystalline aluminum nitride (AlN) and gallium nitride (GaN) materials and related products and services, is pleased to announce the successful demonstration of a 10-inch diameter aluminum nitride (AlN) on sapphire template.
Kyma’s AlN templates are manufactured using its patented plasma vapor deposition of nanocolumns (PVDNC) technology, which provides GaN LED manufacturers with throughput, cost, and performance benefits. Light emitting diode (LED) manufacturers choose Kyma’s PVDNC AlN templates as a replacement for bare and patterned sapphire substrates by manufacturers of blue, green, and white light emitting diodes (LEDs).
“Over the past year we have demonstrated several firsts in AlN template manufacturing, in each case leveraging Kyma’s new volume manufacturing tool, including customer qualification of our 2” sapphire based product and large diameter demonstrations on both silicon and sapphire,” said Ed Preble, Kyma’s Chief Technology Officer. “Together these results confirm the diameter scalability of the PVDNC AlN process as well as its robustness and flexibility for growth on different starting substrates".
