Electronic, Photonic and Magnetic Materials

For any electronic device to function well, electrical current must be efficiently controlled by switching devices, which becomes increasingly challenging as systems approach very small dimensions. This problem must be addressed by synthesizing materials that allow reliable turn-on and turn-off of current at any size scale. New electronic and photonic nanomaterials promise dramatic breakthroughs in communications, computing devices and solid-state lighting. Current research includes bulk crystal growth, organic semiconductors, thin film and nanostructure growth, and soft lithography. Several of the leading photonics companies in the world views on different technologies, and opinions about future challenges and opportunities for manufacturers and integrators of lasers and photonics products. The silicon photonics market is expected to grow to $497.53 million by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 27.74% from 2014 to 2020. The silicon carbide semiconductor market is estimated to grow $3182.89 Million by 2020, at an estimated CAGR of 42.03% from 2014 to 2020.

Most common semiconducting materials are crystalline solids, but amorphous and liquid semiconductors are also known. These include hydrogenated amorphous silicon and mixtures of arsenic, selenium and tellurium in a variety of proportions. These compounds share with better known semiconductors the properties of intermediate conductivity and a rapid variation of conductivity with temperature, as well as occasional negative resistance. Such disordered materials lack the rigid crystalline structure of conventional semiconductors such as silicon. They are generally used in thin film structures, which do not require material of higher electronic quality, being relatively insensitive to impurities and radiation damage.
