"We are excited by the promise of this technology combining the most robust semiconductor material with the best heat spreader," commented Dr. Ivan Eliashevich, Director of R&D at EMCORE Corporation's EMD division. "Epitaxial wafers based on a GaN-on-Diamond platform should enable device manufacturers to push the limits of high-power performance and reliability across a wide range of applications."
