I believe it is better than Sapphire. but if take cost into consideration, would it be a cost competitive solution than sapphire? how does GaN perform in light efficience if compared with SiC.

Better thermal conductivity is the need of the present day semiconductor devices specially in Power Electronics segment and Lighting LEDs, as the Sumitomo suggests this might be a good replacement of the material used now.
