    Author : Daniel Johannesson; Hans-Peter Nee; Staffan Norrga; Muhammad Nawaz; Alberto Castellazzi; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; 4H-SiC; Current Filamentation; Device Characterization; Dynamic Avalanche; JTE Structure; Junction Termination Extension Design; SiC BJT; SiC GTO Thyristor; SiC IGBT; SiC MOSFET; SiC PiN Diode; Silicon Carbide; TCAD Simulation; Wide bandgap device; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : The increased awareness of the on-going climate change accelerates the electric energy system transformation from fossil-fueled power sources towards systems with larger portions of renewable energy sources. Moreover, the grid infrastructure requires reinforcements to cope with increasing electrical energy demand. READ MORE

  2. 2. Development of SiC MESFET Based MMIC Technology

    Author : Mattias Sudow; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MIM capacitor; high power amplifier; limiter; SiC MMIC; SiC MESFET; SiC Schottky; TFR; high level mixer; spiral inductor; via-hole;

    Abstract : A SiC MESFET based MMIC process has been successfully developed. This technology has its main potential in high power microwave circuits. It will offer the benefits of the high integration seen in GaAs MMIC at the same time as it will offer the benefits of the high voltage operation seen in Si LDMOS and Si BJTs. READ MORE

  3. 3. Growth and characterization of SiC and GaN

    Author : Rafal Ciechonski; Erik Janzén; Sebastian Lourdudoss; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : At present, focus of the SiC crystal growth development is on improving the crystalline quality without polytype inclusions, micropipes and the occurrence of extended defects. The purity of the grown material, as well as intentional doping must be well controlled and the processes understood. READ MORE

  4. 4. Fluorinated SiC CVD

    Author : Pontus Stenberg; Erik Janzén; Henrik Pedersen; Angel Yanguas-Gil; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : For the emerging semiconductor material silicon carbide (SiC) used in high power devices, chemical vapor deposition (CVD) is the most prominent method to create the electrically active SiC epitaxial layers in the device. The process of growing such epitaxial layers is to use a hydrocarbon and silane diluted in hydrogen flow through a hot chamber where chemical reactions take place in such manner that Si and C finally deposit on the surface creating epitaxial SiC.
