It looks to me as though Nitronex was issued a patent in 2009 that covers implantation of Argon... Were they being funded by Nitronex?

Yes, GaN has been touted as the next-gen for high-power applications for so long that many thought it was already there. This simple but important process may finally realize the dream.

it might be of comparable importance as GaN leds eventually, but initially it likely will be used in smaller markets? unless of course the same effect is leveraged for handset power amps enabling very small devices with very high but manageable power densities ( when used with this method ). Fascinating work and clearly the researchers are superb - excellent out of the box experimentalists. But comparing this with the recent announcement on an inexpensive means to reduce GaN substrate defects via a novel growth / regrowth, I suspect the GaN substrate growth will potentially have greater significance in larger markets ( lighting and RF ), whereas this is "just" useful in RF / power. Both are fascinating important innovations.

GaN has been slated for high power applications for more than a decade. This will be a solid step toward that goal. Maybe this work is as important as Nakaruma's lateral growth of GaN thin film which led to the development of commercial blue LED.

It is good news. It can be used in PA also. Hillol Sarkar www.ago-inc.com

Wow! Great work! I can't wait to see this in real parts soon! -Lee

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
