Lecture Title: The Application of Phosphorus in III/V Semiconductor Devices

Thursday, 25 January 2024, 5.40 pm – 6.30 pm (MEZ)


Lighting with Phosphorus

Even if the amount of phosphorus used in III/V semiconductor devices is by far much smaller than in other applications of the chemical industry the element plays an important role in many lighting applications. Ams OSRAM develops and markets LEDs based on phosphorus-containing III/V semiconductors since many years.

After a short introduction of the company, the basics of (phosphorus-based) opto-semiconductors and the detailed process chain of LED manufacturing is presented, together with respective application examples.
