Virtual Short Course: Fabrication of Wide Bandgap Power Devices

August 3 - August 5

With funding from Power America, the NC State Nanofabrication Facility (NNF) and Analytical Instrumentation Facility (AIF) are pleased to offer a virtual three-day short course which will explore the science and technology underpinning wide bandgap (specifically, GaN and SiC) power devices. This short course will be an avenue to develop critical skills for wide bandgap (WBG) device manufacturers and researchers, particularly in the area of power applications.

The short course will include lectures on the fundamentals of WBG power devices; overviews and demonstrations of WBG power device fabrication, characterization, and packaging; panel discussions surrounding future applications and challenges; and a keynote seminar by NC State Distinguished Professor Jay Baliga, an internationally-recognized expert on power semiconductor devices.

Questions about the short course can be directed to Dr. Phil Barletta (pbarlet@ncsu.edu). A flier for the course is available here.

Online registration for this course is closed, but we still have room in the course. If you are interested in attending, please contact Maude Cuchiara at mlrowlan@ncsu.edu for meeting information.
