Next generation semiconductors for power electronics University of Tsukuba
Wide gap semiconductor materials are expected as a key technology on an innovation of power electronics. In this course, related technologies on the power electronics using these materials like crystal growth, device processing, application, and characterization are reviewed.
Characteristics of wide gap semiconductor materials like SiC, GaN, Ga2O3, and Diamond for using power electronics are learned by comparing with Si semiconductor material.Importance of the power electronics that can control the electric energy is learned. Related technologies on each wide gap semiconductor materials are learned. Meaning of the power electronics using wide gap semiconductor materials as the science and industry technologies is learned.
In this lecture, recent R&D results or related topics published in scientific journals will be introduced. So, it would be preferable if you are familiar to read scientific journals written in English. And it is desirable to take lectures like crystal growth, semiconductor device, and electric circuit.
Grading will be carried out by contents of reports you will submit.
