The Centre For GaN Materials and Devices aims to develop cutting-edge technologies and perform advanced research on III-nitride materials and devices.

Founded in 2015, the centre has two MOVPE epitaxial growth systems, comprehensive optical characterisation systems, device testing systems and device fabrication systems. The centre is part of the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at The University of Sheffield.

First China-UK Workshop on Wide Band-gap Semiconductor Materials and Devices

In June 2018 over 40 delegates from the UK and China attended the workshop which was supported by the Solid-State Lighting Engineering Research Centre (Xi’an Jiaotong University), the Institute of Physics (IOP) and the Centre for GaN Materials and Devices (University of Sheffield).
