Investigation of Reliability Issues and Physical Mechanisms of Breakdown in High-Voltage GaN/AlGaN HFETs on Silicon Substrates

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The proposed research activity focuses on the investigation of reliability issues and achievable performance of GaN-HFETs grown on Si substrates for power conversion applications as replacement for Si-based MOSFETs.
In this project, a detailed activity of devices simulations, physical modeling and reliability investigations will be addressed. The simulation decks of power GaN FETs on silicon substrate will be set up by accounting for the geometry, the different stacks of materials, the layers of passivation encapsulation materials on top. More specifically, the electrical properties of the materials which are nowadays proposed for such new technologies will be addressed.
The main goal will be the determination and comparison of performance stability and robustness of GaN devices for different geometries, by varying the interface trap configurations and the operating temperatures.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
