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.

The previous post introduced all of the different type of preheaters. The Hot Plate or Platen preheater will be the first type I will discuss. If you are looking for a low-cost option for preheating, the Hot Plate or Platen preheating is the way to go. The preheater consists of an iron plate with strip…
For this week’s World of Solder Preforms series installment, Brandon Judd explains the importance of reflow profiling: Solder preforms are a very common method of reducing voiding in a soldered device with larger X/Y dimensions. Compared to solder paste (which is approximately 50% flux by…
