NTHU unveils compound semiconductor laboratory


TAIPEI–National Tsing Hua University (NTHU) unveiled a new compound semiconductor laboratory Monday that it hopes will contribute to the development of new chip components that will support alternative green energy sources.

The lab represents the first project in Taiwan to fully integrate semiconductor component research, said Cheng Keh-yung, dean of NTHU’s College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, at the inauguration ceremony.

Cheng said the lab will cover passive and active component development from the epitaxy process (which creates crystals for many base semiconductor materials) to chip component manufacturing and testing.
