Aluminum nitride possesses very high thermal conductivity and effectively used in the ceramic industry. It finds application in deep ultraviolet optoelectronics, steel production, dielectric layers in optical storage media, chip carriers and as a crucible to grow crystals of gallium arsenide. It is also used as a radio frequency filter, which finds application in mobile phones. Further, it is used as a circuit carrier in semiconductors. In addition to this, it is used as a heat-sink in light-emitting diode lighting technology.
