How is Gallium Nitride GaN powder produced?
Gallium nitride is a Group III-V Gan semiconductor and has a very high chemical resistance to corrosive environments. There is a firm bond between Ga and nitrogen, which is the cause of the corrosion resistance of the compound. Ballium nitride is a direct bandgap semiconductor (bandgap = 3.4 having a fibrous mineral structure EV) and is a material for producing a corrosive ambient light-emitting device. Gallium nitride is prepared by reacting Ga2O 3 with NH3 at a high temperature of about 1000 ° C.
Ga 2 O 3 + 2 NH 3 → 2 GaN + 3H 2 O
An organometallic compound containing Ga and a nitrogen atom can also be deposited by the chemical gas phase. X-ray diffraction and conductivity measurements indicate that corrosive acids and alkaline environments have no effect on the GaN phase.
