Zinc oxide has the potential to make a tremendous impact in the ultraviolet and visible LEDs markets. Manufacturing costs for making LEDs with this material promise to be far less than those associated with the incumbent, gallium nitride, and could spur widespread adoption of solid-state lighting. Zinc oxide can also provide a low-cost alternative to indium tin oxide (ITO), a widely used conductive contact for displays and thin-film solar cells.
Riber is supporting the development of zinc oxide with its industry-leading Compact 12, Compact 21 and MBE 412 research systems. It also participated in the European Union program called 'Défi ZnO' to improve the performance of these materials.
