|20090130781||METHOD FOR SIMULTANEOUSLY PRODUCING MULTIPLE WAFERS DURING A SINGLE EPITAXIAL GROWTH RUN AND SEMICONDUCTOR STRUCTURE GROWN THEREBY - HVPE method for simultaneously fabricating multiple Group III nitride semiconductor structures during a single reactor run. A HVPE reactor includes a reactor tube, a growth zone, a heating element and a plurality of gas blocks. A substrate holder is capable of holding multiple substrates and can be a single or multi-level substrate holder. The gas delivery blocks are independently controllable. Gas flows from the delivery blocks are mixed to provide a substantially uniform gas environment within the growth zone. The substrate holder can be controlled, e.g., rotated and/or tilted, for uniform material growth. Multiple Group III nitride semiconductor structures can be grown on each substrate during a single fabrication run of the HVPE reactor. Growth on different substrates is substantially uniform and can be performed on larger area substrates, such as 3-12″ substrates.||05-21-2009|
|20090092815||METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR FABRICATING CRACK-FREE GROUP III NITRIDE SEMICONDUCTOR MATERIALS - A method and apparatus for growing low defect, optically transparent, colorless, crack-free, substantially flat, single crystal Group III nitride epitaxial layers with a thickness of at least 10 microns is provided. These layers can be grown on large area substrates comprised of Si, SiC, sapphire, GaN, AlN, GaAs, AlGaN and others. In one aspect, the crack-free Group III nitride layers are grown using a modified HVPE technique. If desired, the shape and the stress of Group III nitride layers can be controlled, thus allowing concave, convex and flat layers to be controllably grown. After the growth of the Group III nitride layer is complete, the substrate can be removed and the freestanding Group III nitride layer used as a seed for the growth of a boule of Group III nitride material. The boule can be sliced into individual wafers for use in the fabrication of a variety of semiconductor structures (e.g., HEMTs, LEDs, etc.).||04-09-2009|
