Definition: gallium nitride

An alloy of gallium and nitrogen (GaN) that is used in semiconductor devices for lasers and LEDs, including blue lasers. Gallium nitride has the thermal and chemical stability required in laser applications. Gallium nitride field-effect transistors (GaN FETs) are used for high-power switching. See GaN charger, gallium arsenide and III-V semiconductor.
