Gallium nitride is the silicon of the future

Last week Anker introduced a small new power brick using a small piece of GaN: gallium nitride (GaN) instead of silicon. This is a recent example in which transparent and glassy materials are popularized day by day. One day we can strip out silicon and reduce energy use around the world.

For decades, silicon was the backbone of the technology industry, but Danqing Wang, Ph.D. candidate for Harvard University who is conducting GaN research, said, "Silicon has become the backbone of the technology industry. Bandgap. "GaN has a wider bandgap than silicon, which can sustain higher voltages than silicon can survive, and current can pass through the device more quickly.
