Despite significant progress obtained in the last two decades, the performance of GaN electronic devices is far from the limits of this material, which we believe is due to the challenges in material growth. Therefore, it is crucial to understand
There is a significantly increasing demand for developing III-nitride micro light-emitting diodes (μLEDs) for a wide range of applications such as autodisplay, next generation TV, microdisplays for smart phones and smart watches, and Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality (AR and
A new spin-out company developing the next generation of micro-LED technology has officially launched this week (4 February 2020). The company, named EpiPix Ltd, is developing and commercialising game-changing micro-LED technology for photonics applications, such as micro-displays for portable smart
On Monday 13th January 2020 the Centre for GaN Materials and Devices hosted their third Industry Open Day in order to share research insights, advances for manufacturing III-nitride semiconductor devices and the latest opportunities for industry collaboration with the UK’s
This event is designed for photonics and electronics companies who are considering a research collaboration to harness the innovation opportunities of III-nitride semiconductors. Join us in Sheffield on Monday 13th January 2020 to discover more about: our latest technology and
Suneal Ghataora has successfully defended his PhD viva. His research focused on fabrication and characterisation of hybrid organic and inorganic III-Nitride semiconductor light emitting opto-electronic devices. Congratulations to Suneal.
It’s long been known that the unique properties of III-nitride semiconductor materials make them ideally suited to microelectronics and optoelectronics. But they also have a critical role to play in addressing some of the major global challenges through advances in
On Wednesday 19th June 2019 we welcomed a delegation from Nanjing University to our research centre in Sheffield. During the visit the delegation met with teams from all six University faculties to discuss opportunities for potential further research collaboration. They
The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Compound Semiconductor Manufacturing aims to supply the UK with scientists and engineers with relevant skills and knowledge for the compound semiconductor industry. Students will spend their first year in Cardiff on a Compound
Congratulations to Dr Modestos Athanasiou who has been awarded a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship. Dr Athanasiou, formerly a Research Associate at our research centre also completed his PhD studies at The University of Sheffield.
