Kyma Adds Beta Gallium Oxide (β-Ga2O3) Substrates to its Product Line

Kyma Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of wide bandgap materials and related products and services, is pleased to announce its launch of a crystalline beta-phase gallium oxide (β-Ga2O3) substrate product line.

Kyma’s β-Ga2O3 Substrates are produced by slicing {010} oriented bulk crystals, then lapping and polishing through a CMP process to create an epi-ready {010} oriented substrate.

This new offering was made possible by Kyma’s successful and ongoing collaboration with Northrop-Grumman SYNOPTICS which has developed a β-Ga2O3 boule growth process with support from Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL).

Kyma’s president & CEO, Dr. Keith Evans, commented, “It’s been great to observe the rapid progress made by SYNOPTICS in this exciting new materials system. We have greatly enjoy collaborating with them and we are very pleased to have the opportunity to apply Kyma’s crystal fabrication capabilities to their β-Ga2O3 crystals to create this important new product offering.”

SYNOPTICS’ general manager, Dr. Kevin Stevens, added, “We are pleased to work with Kyma. They have helped us better understand the potential of our materials and the nuances of substrate fabrication, and they are closely connected with the semiconductor research community which is the current target customer base.”

This new product offering represents the latest addition to Kyma’s related products and services connected with the β-Ga2O3 materials system, which also includes β-Ga2O3 Epiwafers and β-Ga2O3 Wafer Fabrication Services.
