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 next few posts come to us from my colleagues Karthik Vijay, Indium Corporation’s Technical Manager for Europe and Liam Mills of TT Electronics Power and Hybrid. They’ve done some exciting work using InFORM® technology to make more reliable solder joints at a lower cost than traditional…
The Indium Corporation has many summer interns this year. The technical support group was fortunate enough to hire Sarah Bjornland (pictured). She is a very bright student from the University of Rochester, studying optical engineering and minoring in dance. She is scheduled to graduate in 2017 and wishes…
Most of our customers use whatever heating method they already have, unless they are starting from scratch or unless there is a reason their existing reflow equipment will not work well for a new application. Most of the time we see common heating equipment such as belt furnaces, batch ovens, and soldering…
