Saint Gobain To Develop Substrates For BluGlass’ GaN-On-Glass Devices

Australian GaN-on-glass specialist BluGlass Ltd has signed an 18 month joint development agreement to work with France’s Saint-Gobain Recherche (SGR), the main corporate research center of materials supplier Saint-Gobain Group.

SGR has a particular focus on specialty glass formation, glass processing, and thin-film deposition technologies, and will develop specifically engineered substrates for BluGlass’ gallium nitride layers and devices.

BluGlass was spun off from the III-nitride department of Macquarie University in Sydney in October 2005, and this September raised US$7.7m in an initial public offering and listed on the Australian Stock Exchange. CEO David Jordan says that strategic alliances with global companies such as Saint-Gobain are an integral part of the development and commercialization of its technology. “Working with a technology leader such as SGR makes sense for BluGlass, given their ability to engineer substrates optimally suited to the BluGlass deposition process,” he adds.
