A template for a semiconductor device is made by providing an AGN substrate, growing a first layer of Group III nitrides on the substrate, depositing a thin metal layer on the first layer, annealing the metal such as gold so that it agglomerates to form a pattern of islands on the first layer; transferring the pattern into the first layer by etching then removing excess metal; and then depositing a second Group III nitride layer on the first layer. The second layer, through lateral overgrowth, coalesces over the gaps in the island pattern leaving a smooth surface with low defect density. A Group III semiconductor device may then be grown on the template, which may then be removed. Chlorine gas may be used for etching the pattern in the first layer and the remaining gold removed with aqua regia.

The goal of the Phase II program is to fabricate high voltage high power converter/inverters for high frequency/high temperature operation using enhancement mode-depletion mode insulating ate AlInN-GaN/i-SiC transistor building blocks. Our technical approach is to use lattice matched AlInN-GaN epilayers in conjunction with a field-plated insulating gate HEMT device design and a fluorine treatment to accomplish the goal. We believe that the combination of lattice matched AlInN field-plated HEMTs, a unique pulsed PECVD insulator deposition and the use of a controlled fluorine treatment should overcome the issues currently faced by the AlGaN-GaN based technology. The suitability of our devices for military and commercial applications will be established via a joint processing and device testing program. In the Phase III program we will develop a large volume manufacturing technology for epitaxial wafers and devices for supply to DOD and commercial outfits in a strategic partnership with a large company.
