CrayoNano has developed a novel technique that enables growth of positioned and vertically aligned nanowires on graphene.
By growing AlGaN (aluminium gallium nitride) nanowires on graphene, graphene will be used both as a substrate and as a UV transparent electrode in order to achieve a high external efficiency.
CrayoNano’s unique device structure thus leads to reduced heat loss, and in addition reduced material consumption. Nanowires enables improved internal quantum efficiency, operating lifetime, and reliability.
The result is a flexible and extremely thin and lightweight epiwafer able to emit large amounts of light from a small area. Graphene is experiencing tremendous attention worldwide. Semiconductor nanowires on graphene are expected to become the basis for new types of device systems, and ultimately change the semiconductor industry.
