Research Department of Semiconductor

Activities of this department include growth of various crystals, research on metallic and semiconducting materials, and characterization of materials and devices mainly by instrumental and analytical techniques. The division of Crystal Growth is engaged in the growth of single crystals, and has so far succeeded in growing single crystals of different semiconductors. The division of Semiconductor Device Fabrication carries out research on semiconducting materials and related devices. Notable examples are silicon solar cells, different photodetectors, and solid-state gas sensors.
