3D Interconnects for III-V Semiconductor Heterostructures for Miniaturized Power Devices

(in Cell Reports Physical Science)


This work by de Lafontaine et al. issued from a collaboration between the LN2/3IT laboratory in Sherbrooke Canada and LTM/CNRS in Grenoble France reports a method to fabricate 3D interconnects on III-V semiconductor devices. A proof of concept is realized on III-V/Ge triple junction solar cells with an area 3 orders of magnitude smaller compared with standard chips. This strategy enables device miniaturization with increased wafer area use.
