GALLIUM NITRIDE has been the subject of intensive research and product development over the past fifteen years. Since 2000, GaN research activities have intensified around the world. The number of companies and research centers with GaN activity has increased to over 700 organizations in 2009 from roughly 350 such organizations identified in 2000.
Blue, green, and white LED technology has continued its large-scale commercial growth, helping the GaN device market to reach nearly $4.6 billion in 2008. White LEDs are responsible for well over 50% of the total GaN related LED market. Future high-growth GaN devices include high-power LEDs for lighting, electronic devices, and laser diodes. The latter will be used in the next generation of optical storage technology and their development will be spurred by increasing availability of GaN and AlN substrates.
