Kevin Chen is currently pursuing his PhD in Electrical Engineering with Professor Ali Javey. His research interests include flexible electronics as well as thin film materials growth. He received his BSE in Electrical Engineering from Arizona State University in 2008.
Nonepitaxial Growth of Single Crystalline III-V Semiconductors onto Insulating Substrates [BPN777]
III-V semiconducting materials have many characteristics such as high electron mobilities and direct band.
gaps that make them desirable for many electronic applications including high performance transistors and
solar cells. However, these materials generally have a high cost of production which significantly limits
their use in many commercial applications. We aim to explore new growth methods which can grow high quality
crystalline III-V films, using InP as an example substrate, onto non-epitaxial substrates. In addition to
excellent crystal quality, critical considerations include cost and scalability for commercially viable
