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.
1st : Microelectronics vs. Power electronics.
2nd : Wide gap semiconductor materials.
3rd : Wide gap semiconductors and its power electronics applications.
4th : Current situation of wide gap semiconductors and its power electronics.
5th : Bulk crystal growth of wide gap semiconductor materials.
6th : Epitaxial growth of wide gap semiconductor materials.
7th : Dislocations of wide gap semiconductor materials and its characterization.
8th : Metal-oxide- semiconductor interface of wide gap semiconductor materials.
9th : Reliability of wide gap semiconductor power devices.
10th : Design and packaging technologies of wide gap semiconductor power devices.
11th : Test.
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.
