As a leading GaAs substrate supplier, PAM-XIAMEN manufactures Epi-ready GaAs(Gallium Arsenide) Wafer Substrate including semi-conducting n type, semi-conductor undoped and p type with prime grade and dummy grade. The GaAs substrate resistivity depends on dopants, Si doped or Zn doped is (0.001~0.009) ohm.cm, undoped one is >=1E7 ohm.cm. The GaAs wafer crystal orientation should be (100) and (111). For (100) orientation, it can be 2°/6°/15° off. The EPD of GaAs wafer normally is <5000/cm2 for LED or <500/cm2 for LD or microelectronics.

2. GaAs Wafer Market & Application

Gallium arsenide is an important semiconductor material. It belongs to group III-V compound semiconductors and the zinc blende crystal lattice structure, with a lattice constant of 5.65×10-10m, a melting point of 1237°C, and a band gap of 1.4 electron volts. Gallium arsenide can be made into semi-insulating high-resistance materials, which can be used to make integrated circuit substrates, infrared detectors, gamma photon detectors, etc. Because its electron mobility is 5 to 6 times greater than silicon, SI GaAs substrate has been importantly used in the fabrication of microwave devices and high-speed digital circuits. Semiconductor devices fabricated on gallium arsenide have the advantages of high frequency, high temperature, low temperature performance, low noise, and strong radiation resistance, which make the GaAs substrate market enlarge.

 

3. Test certificate of GaAs wafer can include below analysis if necessary:

1/Surface roughness of Gallium Arsenide including front side and backside(nanometers).

2/Doping concentration of Gallium Arsenide(cm-3)

3/EPD of Gallium Arsenide(cm-2)

4/Mobility of Gallium Arsendie(V.sec)

5/X-ray diffraction analysis (rocking curves) of Gallium Arsenide: Diffraction reflection curve half-width

6/Low-temperature photoluminescence (emission spectra in the range 0.7-1.0 μm) of Gallium Arsenide: The fraction of exciton photoluminescence in the emission spectrum of the near-IR range at a temperature of 4K or 5 K and an optical excitation density of 1 W / cm2

7/Transmission rate or Absorption coefficient: for instant, we can measure absorption coefficient of single crystal undoped GaAs at 1064nm: <0.6423 cm-1, and this corresponds to a transmission minimum of 33.2% for an exactly 6.5mm thick blank at 1064nm.
