About SSPL

Solid State Physics Laboratory, a premier DRDO semiconductor research laboratory, was established in 1962 with the broad objective of developing an R&D base in the field of Solid State Materials, Devices, and sub-systems. Ever since, SSPL has worked relentlessly to achieve distinction in the indigenous development of semiconductor materials and devices.

Several solid-state devices like Gunn, Schottky Barrier and IMPATT Diodes, Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits (MMICs), High-power Laser Diodes, Quadrant Detectors, Single Pole Single Throw (SPST) Switches, PIN Photodiodes, space-quality Solar Cells, Accelerometers, Linear Infrared (IR) Arrays, Thermoelectric (TE) Coolers, Phase Shifters, Hydrophones, SAW based e-Nasika etc have been developed at SSPL. Device quality II-VI/III-V semiconductor crystals and heterostructures have also been developed.

The laboratory is equipped with advanced facilities for Nano-fabrication, Crystal growth and epitaxy, including Electron Beam Lithography, Focused Ion Beam, III-As/N/Sb & II-VI MBEs, III-N/As MOCVDs etc. In addition, an advanced facility for micro-structural, compositional and electrical characterization of semiconductor materials and devices has been setup.
