PAM-XIAMEN can offer 2” InGaAs/InP epi wafer for PIN as follows. InGaAs is the compound of InAs and GaAs. In the periodic table of chemical elements, In and Ga are elements of the third group, and As is the fifth group element. The properties of InGaAs are between the properties of GaAs and inAs. As a room temperature semiconductor, InGaAs is widely used in electronics and photonics nowadays.

2.InGaAs Epi Wafer for PIN
Ordinary diodes are composed of PN junctions. A thin, low-doped Intrinsic semiconductor layer is added between the P and N semiconductor materials to form a diode with a P-I-N structure, which is a PIN. Because the carrier concentration and electron mobility of the InGaAs epitaxial layer matched with the InP lattice are very high, which exceed that of the AlGaAs matched with the GaAs lattice, the InGaAs/InP epi wafer has a large application prospects in the frequency range of more than ten hertz. Therefore, the InGaAs epi wafer on InP substrate from PAM-XIAMEN makes the PIN device a fast data transmission rate, low dark current, high response and high reliability.
