Compound Semiconductors

An article written by Mike Rosa, Applied Materials for Nanochip newsletter - Did you think chip making on 150mm wafers was a thing of the past? Think again. Many of the megatrends shaping our collective futures—mobility, autonomous driving and electric vehicles, 5G wireless communications, augmented- and virtual reality (AR/VR), and healthcare—depend on innovations created on the 150mm wafer size.

World's first α-Ga2O3 'normally off' MOSFET paves the way to the manufacture of commercial power series from Kyoto University spin-off. For power semiconductors, silicon dominates as a material, generating sales of more than $20 billion per annum. However, silicon power devices are far from perfect, wasting 10 percent of electrical energy as heat. The industry has been challenged to achieve higher efficiencies with new semiconductor materials.

Though VCSEL (vertical cavity surface-emitting lasers) have existed for 20+ years, they were relatively unknown until Apple used three of them in the iPhoneX to enable its 3D sensing and facial recognition functions (it is worth noting that in 2016 and 2017, Lenovo and Asus both implemented similar functionalities in their phones).
