In 2015 Prof. Florin Udrea was elected a Fellow of Royal Academy of Engineering. In 2018 Prof. Udrea has been awarded several major prizes, including the Mullard medal from the Royal Society.
The power devices field has seen tremendous changes in the last decade. The traditional power MOSFET has been largely replaced by a new class of power devices based on the Silicon Sueprjunction concept, while the Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors (IGBTs) are now fabricated on 12 inch wafers and have access to the latest thin wafer/trench/fine dimension technologies. However most of the innovation and flavor in the field comes from the emergence of Wide Band Gap semiconductors - and in particular the Gallium Nitride and Silicon Carbide. Extensive research is also carried out in single crystal Diamond and Gallium Oxide materials. The market of power devices has reached $30M with steady growth in silicon but exponential growth in wide bandgap materials reaching CAGRs in excess of 30% in the next 3-5 years. This talk will cover a range of wide bandgap semiconductor technologies and materials for power devices and give a comparison between different technologies and materials for diverse power electronics applications. New Figures of Merit (FOMs) will be defined for the materials and technologies of power devices. The talk will end with an outline of the challenges for the power electronics future and a vision of different technologies for the next 10 years.
