III-V Material Sources

Chemfiles Volume 4 Article 3

At the forefront of optoelectronic, lighting and data storage applications, III-V semiconductor materials continue to generate exciting new applications. III-V quantum dot heterostructures can address the technical challenges of data transfer and storage issues in telecom and datacom systems. Blue laser GaN LEDs are expected to make a significant impact on HD-DVD storage in the coming years.1 The figure shows the necessary material layers to construct the blue-violet lasers.2 GaAs and InP are primary components of low noise and power amplifiers. High brightness LEDs for mobile phones and automotive display lighting are made from a variety of III-V semiconductors. Sigma-Aldrich can provide the highest quality III-V precursors for research and production applications.
