Spokane Company Receives WTC Grant
The Washington Technology Center announced the recipients of its Research & Technology Development (RTD) awards for spring 2004. One Spokane Company, Galaxy Compound Semiconductor, was among the recipients. Galaxy Compound Semiconductor is working with Dr. Matthew McCluskey at WSUs Department of Physics to characterize a new infrared detector material that will have a wider spectral range than conventional detectors. An indium antimonide (InSb) based material that operates in the far infrared region would be a strong competitor to mercury-cadmium-telluride (MCT) semiconductors in this market. To achieve this, Galaxy proposes adding Bismuth (Bi) to the alloy to extend the wavelength. Prototypes of the new detector will be tested, opening up new markets for Galaxy and increasing interest in InSbBi semiconductor materials.
