Wide Bandgap Semiconductor-Based Electronics

Fan Ren, Stephen J Pearton


Advances in wide bandgap semiconductor materials are enabling the development of a new generation of power semiconductor devices that far exceed the performance of silicon-based devices. These technologies offer potential breakthrough performance for a wide range of applications, including high-power and RF electronics, deep-UV optoelectronics, quantum information and extreme-environment applications.

This reference text provides comprehensive coverage of the challenges and latest research in wide and ultra-wide bandgap semiconductors. Leading researchers from around the world provide reviews on the latest development of materials and devices in these systems.

The book is an essential reference for researchers and practitioners in the field of wide bandgap semiconductors and power electronics, and valuable supplementary reading for advanced courses in these areas.
