- It is the primary failure mode for AlGaInP / AlGaAs red lasers.
- Aluminium gallium indium phosphide ( AlGaInP ), are especially prone to current crowding phenomena.
- It is used mainly in HEMT and AlGaInP alloy ) to make high brightness LEDs with orange-red, orange, yellow, and green colors.
- AlGaInP is used in manufacture of light-emitting diodes of high-brightness red, orange, green, and yellow color, to form the heterostructure emitting light.
- Quaternary and higher compositions allow adjusting simultaneously the band gap and the lattice constant, allowing increasing radiant efficiency at wider range of wavelengths; for example AlGaInP is used for LEDs.
- The primary application AlGaInP laser is in optical disc readers, DVD players and compact disc players Other uses include laser pointers, gas sensors, as a pumping source and for machining.
- Because of the eye's increased sensitivity to blue and green light when adapted to very low luminance levels ( such as those in even moderately polluted clear night skies ), white light sources such as white AlGaInP LEDs.
- In 1995, Alberto Barbieri at the Cardiff University Laboratory ( GB ) investigated the efficiency and reliability of high-brightness LEDs and demonstrated a " transparent contact " LED using indium tin oxide ( ITO ) on ( AlGaInP / GaAs ).
- "' Trimethylindium "'( abbr : TMI or TMIn ), In ( CH 3 ) 3, ( CAS # : 3385-78-2 ) is the preferred organometallic source of indium for metalorganic vapour phase epitaxy ( MOVPE ) of indium-containing compound semiconductors, such as InP, InAs, InN, InSb, GaInAs, InGaN, AlGaInP, AlInP, AlInGaNP, etc . TMI is a white, crystalline and sublimable solid, with melting point 88 癈 . TMI is pyrophoric ( ignites spontaneously upon contact with air ), and its decomposition is often found to be uncontrollable as the temperature of its surrounding exceeds its melting point ( i . e . > 88 癈 ) and reaches 101 癈 and above.
