Semiconductors refer to materials that exhibit electrical conductivity between conductors and insulators. At the same time, compound semiconductors are manufactured from two or more different groups of chemical elements in the periodic table. Zinc sulphide (ZnS), gallium arsenide (GaAs), silicon-germanium (SiGe), indium phosphide (InP), gallium nitride (GaN), silicon carbide (SiC) and zinc selenide (ZnSe) are some of the common elements used in compound semiconductors. The devices made from compound semiconductors exhibit various unique properties, such as high electron mobility and bandgap, enhanced frequency, better current and voltage holding capacity, temperature resistance, breakdown electric fields, faster operation and greater ability to generate microwave signals. As a result, compound semiconductors are widely used in telecommunications, defense, aerospace, automotive, healthcare, electronics and information technology (IT) industries.
