Sorry, no etymologies found.
Using a technique called oblique angle deposition, the researchers deposited silica nanorods at an angle of precisely 45 degrees on top of a thin film of aluminum nitride, which is a semiconducting material used in advanced light-emitting diodes (LEDs).
The sensors work by joining different reactive substances with the semiconductor gallium nitride, which is commonly used in amplifiers in cell phones, power grid transmission equipment, etc.,
None are visible with the pure gallium nitride approach.
The problem with Soraa's approach, competitors say, is that gallium nitride wafers are much more expensive than existing materials.
Most companies fabricate the chips by laying down a material called gallium nitride on wafers of sapphire or silicon carbide.
They opted to use a wafer that is also made of gallium nitride—an approach called GaN on GaN, based on the abbreviation for the material.
"Titanium nitride can be made to look pretty close to 24 karat gold," Prof.
And pieces finished in gold-colored titanium nitride might actually work as a stand-in for gold.
If you want the best corrosion resistance might look at titanium actions or guns with sputtered ceramic coatings (TiN/titanium nitride) like Remington uses on their XCR line.
Gallium nitride cannot be grown on silicon like other solid-state electronic components because it shrinks at twice the rate of silicon as it cools.
