Monocrystal Introduces 10-inch Sapphire Substrate to Expand LED Industry Prospects

Monocrystal, a leading manufacturer of electronic materials for LED and solar industries, announced today availability of the company’s innovative ultra-large 10-inch C-plane epi-ready sapphire substrate.

The LED industry continues shifting to larger diameter substrates as it strives to achieve higher cost savings and to increase production throughput of quality LED chips to bring LED lighting closer to its widespread use.

Driven by its strong commitment to technology innovation for sustainability, Monocrystal continues developing next generation large-diameter sapphire wafer technology.

“We were ahead of competition with our best in class 8-inch sapphire substrates for LED and RFIC applications. Now, the introduction of innovative 10-inch LED sapphire substrates clearly demonstrates that Monocrystal is well positioned to support the growing market demands and expands LED industry prospects. This further strengthens Monocrystal position of technology and industry leader,” said Oleg Kachalov, CEO of the company.

Today, sapphire substrates are used for more than 90% of GaN LED chips produced by the industry, including high-brightness devices used for LED lighting products. Compared with conventional incandescent lamps, LED consumes up to 90% less energy, and its life spans 50 times longer. Due to their unique features, LEDs also have become increasingly adopted in other applications, such as mobile devices, displays, traffic lights, car lighting and interiors.
