Thin Films

GaN on Si is not studied much because of the cracking problem in GaN films which becomes worse at a higher temperature. Therefore, our focus is to grow the good quality and less stressed GaN films on Si, using the low-temperature atomic layer deposition (ALD) method. In the future, our plan is to design and […]
