Textbook Question

Wide band-gap semiconductors have a band gap between 2 and 7 electron volts (eV), where 1 eV = 96.485 kJ>mol. The wide band-gap semiconductor GaN, used to construct the laser in Blu-ray DVD players, has a band gap of 3.44 eV. The material in the laser, GaxIn1-x N, has some indium substituted for gallium. (b) If the light from the device is blue, does partial substitution of indium for gallium increase or decrease the band gap of GaxIn1-x N compared to GaN?
