With Orbray’s precision processing technology, we can produce sapphire wafers with various surface orientations (c, r, a, and m-plane), and control the off-cut angle to within 0.1 degree. Using our proprietary technology, we are able to achieve the high quality needed for such applications as epitaxial growth and wafer bonding.
In addition to standard grade substrates for general LED use, we also offer high-quality prime grade wafers. The high-quality cleaning we apply to prime grade wafers results in low contamination from both particles and metal*. We control flatness (TTV, bow, warp, etc.) with our precision manufacturing technology, to minimize any warpage that can occur during epitaxial growth. Our prime grade wafer is optimal for development of new processes and new products. Appli - cations for prime grade wafers include micro-LED, DUV-LED, RF devices, and GaN / AlN / Ga2O3 templates.

*TTV (Total Thickness Variation): The difference between the maximum and minimum
values of the wafer thickness.
*Bow: The deviation of the center point of the median surface of a free, un-clamped wafer from the reference plane, where the reference plane is defined by the three corners of an equilateral triangle.
*Warp: The difference between the maximum and the minimum distances of the median surface of a free, un-clamped wafer from the reference plane defined above.

NAPHIA™️ Prime grade wafers
What is prime grade? Our prime grade sapphire wafer has best-in-class quality in terms of flatness and
Aiming for the equivalent cleanliness as for silicon wafers, we have produced sapphire wafers with very low metal contamination (≤5E10/cm2). We are currently achieving lower metal contamination than 2E10/cm2, which is near the detection limit of our measuring instruments (TXRF).
