Understanding our future through Open Access research about our past...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Centre for the Social History of Health & Healthcare (CSHHH), based within the School of Humanities, and considered Scotland's leading centre for the history of health and medicine.

Research at CSHHH explores the modern world since 1800 in locations as diverse as the UK, Asia, Africa, North America, and Europe. Areas of specialism include contraception and sexuality; family health and medical services; occupational health and medicine; disability; the history of psychiatry; conflict and warfare; and, drugs, pharmaceuticals and intoxicants.

Abstract

A novel method of etching which allows the direct interconnection of multiple GaN-based devices is introduced. The mesa structures of devices are etched using an isotropic recipe which produces tapered sidewalls. The extent of inclination can be readily controlled through various etching parameters, which include the ICP power, plate power and pressure, thus modifying the vertical and lateral etch components. This approach has been successfully adopted in the fabrication of interconnect and matrix-addressable micro-LEDs, which offer superior optical and electrical performance and a high degree of uniformity compared to similar devices fabricated using conventional processes.
