    Appendix B: Gallium Arsenide as a High-Temperature Material Recent advances in the quality of devices have moved this well-known semiconductor into the forefront of high- temperature electronics. In comparison to silicon, the wide bandgap of GaAs (and GaAs-based alloys) makes it an intrinsically high-temperature material (Sze, ~.

    As a result, this class of materials now holds significant promise for semiconductor electronics in a broad range of applications. The principal driver for the current revival of interest in III-V Nitrides is their potential use in high power, high temperature, high frequency and optical devices resistant to radiation damage. Introduction to Semiconductor Devices Reading: Notes and Anderson2 Chapters , transistors behave in the same way as today's devices and shows there are no fundamental barriers to producing these devices in high volume in III/V, or II/VI combinations) leading to the above “reduced File Size: 9MB.

    However, at some temperature, other factors can come into play that cause unpredictable changes in characteristics—extrapolation is undependable. 14) What are the temperature limits of the basic semiconductor materials, and why? Semiconductor devices operate by means of the movement of charge carriers (electrons and holes). 2. An electronic device (e.g. a transistor, diode, or integrated circuit) manufactured from semiconductor materials. Semiconductor devices control and amplify because a small voltage or current, or a physical stimulus (such as light or pressure), allows the semiconductor to pass or block electrical current.

Get this from a library. Characteristics of III-V semiconductor devices at high temperature. [Rainee Simons; United States. National Aeronautics and Space Administration.;]. A compound semiconductor is a semiconductor compound composed of chemical elements of at least two different species.

These semiconductors typically form in periodic table groups 13–15 (old groups III–V), for example of elements from the Boron group (old group III, boron, aluminium, gallium, indium) and from group 15 (old group V, nitrogen, phosphorus, arsenic, antimony.

Since the electronic band structure for each of the nitride materials possesses a direct transition with a band gap energy ranging from eV for InN, to eV for GaN, to eV for AlN at room temperature as well as a fairly high thermal conductivity, the (AlIn)GaN system has been explored in the areas of high-power and high-temperature.
