Creating AlN substrates that will enable next-generation devices


Nitride Solutions core focus is developing volume production processes that will bring new aluminum nitride products to advanced electronics markets, enabling new products that address global needs for safe water and air, more reliable power generation and transmission and higher-speed communications.

Why Aluminum Nitride?
Aluminum nitride is a material that does not exist in nature and its manufacture requires very high temperature reactions in specially designed reactors. The material brings a unique combination of properties to electronic devices: wide bandgap, high thermal conductivity and high voltage resistance. The wide bandgap makes it the best material to use for deep UV and very high power devices, while the high thermal conductivity and high voltage resistance enables thinner structures and faster heat conduction out of the device, allowing higher power operation without premature failure.

Why Nitride Solutions?
Nitride Solutions has developed unique proprietary processes for the volume production of:

  • Aluminum nitride templates (AlN on sapphire) that have industry-best UV transparency and defectivity for use in deep-UV LEDs.
  • Bulk aluminum nitride substrates that enable high-power switches, motor controls and UV laser diodes.
  • High-quality aluminum nitride coatings on copper or aluminum that simplify electronic device structures while maintaining the highest level of thermal conductivity and voltage resistance.
