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.

Indium Corporation Blog Posts
My most recent blog topics have had to do with Wave Soldering Machine Components, but statistics is also something that interests me. Have you ever had to compare two or more sets of data to try and understand if they were unrelated or statistically significant? I recently had to solve this…
After a delightful lunch with Rob, Pete, and the Professor, Patty settled into her office to prepare a lecture on statistics. She was still enjoying the academic environment and this weekly lunch was part of it. Rob and the Professor were both amateur World War II historians, and Patty tried to…
OK! We’ve discussed specifying solder preforms and making solder preforms, although none of that is important until we actually use the preforms for something. Solder preforms can be used as a mechanical, thermal, or electrical connection. In the following posts we will look at what goes into the…
