Currently we are pursuing superlattice growth in wide-bandgap semiconductors to be used in light emitters, such as for the generation of microcavity polaritons. This work is based on MOCVD (Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition) of III-Nitride semiconductors. Epitaxy of quantum well heterostructures, distributed Bragg reflectors, and a variety of superlattice heterostructures are being studied. Additional, related work on semiconductor device processing, optical and material characterization, optical device simulation, and testing will be part of the project.
