2014 Rank Prize for Envisioning Strained-layer Superlattices Awarded to Sandia Fellow
April 22, 2014
The U.S. Department of Energy's Sandia National Laboratories issued the following news release: In 1982, then-Sandia National Laboratories researcher Gordon Osbourn published a theoretical paper that asserted the previously unthinkable: that ultra-thin layers of mismatched atomic lattices could overcome the strain of their union and successfully form a defect-free bond. Going against the grain of the times, Osbourn's calculations stimulated creation of the new field of strained-layer superlattices. Just one of the myriad results of that insight -- strained-layer lasers -- today dominate the entire semiconductor laser market. Approximately one billion are produced each year for a market valued at approximately $5 billion.
