Revolutionizing the Utilization of compound Semiconductor Technology

Project description

A better way to manufacture compound semiconductors

For cars to drive themselves, they need the right processing power that can run at high speeds but use highly efficient materials. From self-driving cars to 5G communications, there’s a need for advanced hardware, higher performance components with very low power consumption. In this context, the EU-funded RUST project will address the problem of oxidation during the manufacturing of compound semiconductors, which decreases their real-life performance and lowers the manufacturing yield. Specifically, the project proposes a distinctive approach that eliminates the oxidation problem during manufacturing leading to a 98 % improvement in the surface quality. The result is a manufacturing process that enables to produce bleeding-edge technologies such as Micro LEDs on scale, making them available for consumer products. The project will determine the economic and technical feasibility of this process.
