Dow Corning Corp. recently announced the formation of a new business serving the wide band gap semiconductor industry. The business is founded on expertise developed from years of in-house and academic research investments, plus the recent acquisitions of business and technology assets in bulk silicon carbide (SiC), SiC thin film technology and gallium nitride (GaN) thin film technology. Dow Corning Compound Semiconductor Solutions is establishing this business to take full advantage of the synergies with its electronics, microelectronics and polycrystalline silicon materials businesses, and its state-of-the-art research photonics and electronics materials programs. "We are very excited about the market potentials, and Dow Corning's future in this business," said Robert Johns, global director of Compound Semiconductor Solutions. "We will be locating our business in Midland, Mich., close to Dow Corning's critical mass of technical capabilities, research and development assets, and strong manufacturing disciplines."
