International collaboration

The Joint Research Centre for Wide Bandgap Semiconductor Optoelectronics is a collaborative effort between the University of Sheffield and Nanjing University in China.

The Centre For GaN Materials and Devices develops cutting-edge technologies and performs 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.
