"III-Nitride Micro- and Nano-Structures and Devices"
ABSTRACT:
Advances in materials research and novel structure designs have brought the dimensions of photonic devices to the scales of the wavelength of the light they emit, transmit, and detect. In this realm, quantum nature of light dominates, enabling more efficient and fast devices. In this talk, the fabrication and optical studies of micron and wavelength-scale photonic structures, including micro-cavities and micro-size light emitters, based on III-nitride wide bandgap semiconductors will be presented. Our recent work on sub-micron photonic structures prepared by e-beam lithography and plasma etching will be discussed. Potential applications of III-nitride micro- and nano-photonics in efficient energy conversion and optical communications will be also be summarized.
