Demand for Gallium Arsenide Wafer in Solar Applications Fuel Market Growth

Gallium Arsenide is mainly a semiconductor compound which are made up of two elements, Gallium (Ga) and Arsenic (As). The element Gallium is a rare earth material, whereas the Arsenic is mostly known for its poisonous properties. Gallium is a bi-product which is manufactured at the time of smelting aluminum and zinc. However, various manufacturing technologies such as Vertical Gradient Freeze (VGF) and Liquid Encapsulated Czochralski (LEC) help in manufacturing gallium arsenide wafers. Gallium arsenide wafers are extensively used in a wide array of industrial applications such as laser diodes, light emitting diodes (LED), wireless communication, solar cells, and monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC).

Gallium arsenide wafer exhibits extraordinary material properties such as high electron mobility, wide temperature operating range, moisture resistance, and high thermal stability. For such properties, gallium arsenide wafer is well suited for various applications of fast switching ultra-high radio frequency.
