LED MOCVD Precursors
Metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) is the method of choice for depositing In- and Ga-containing layers in compound semiconductor applications. While MOCVD has a long history of creating GaAs-based devices, in recent years, light-emitting diodes (LEDs) have grown rapidly in importance. In LEDs, the choice of material depends on the wavelength desired, and most semiconductor materials contain Ga or In, and other elements (for example red LEDs contain AlGaAs, green LEDs contain AlGaInP, blue LEDs contain InGaN).
The precursor materials used for In and Ga are tri-methyls of In or Ga, i.e., TMI (tri-methyl-indium) and TMG (tri-methyl-gallium). The starting materials for manufacturing these high-purity metal-organic precursor materials are indium trichloride and gallium trichloride, respectively.
Indium Corporation manufactures both indium trichloride and gallium trichloride for these markets.

Folks, Let’s check in on Patty…… Patty had to admit that she was getting annoyed. Two of the female engineering students were always going to her husband Rob’s office for help with their homework. At first glance this would seem like a normal thing to do, as Rob was a teaching…
For a solder supplier, the value of knowing the potential demand volume for a part is more important than just to gauge future sales – it is important from a technical point of view as well. I’ve been a customer before and realize that ordering a large amount can get you price breaks, however…
I’ve always been a strong believer that a customer should not get a solder alloy that just “works” for their application, they should get the best alloy for their application. Of course, this is a compromise between all the factors that are important. Bond strength, unique properties,…
