Semiconductor crystals with tuned band gap

Prof. Boaz Pokroy | Materials Science and Engineering


Chemistry and Materials

The Technology

Metal oxides are wide band gap semiconductors. Tuning the bandgap is crucial for electronics, photonics, acoustics and sensing and currently done by doping at high temperature, long processes and is not suitable for all materials (organic materials for example).

Band gap tuning by incorporation of amino-acids during crystallization process at low temperature.


  • Accurate band gap tuning
  • Fast and cheap process
  • Low temperature band gap tunability for thermo-sensitive materials

Applications and Opportunities

  • Sensing
  • Communication
  • Electronic devices
