GaN talks at the 2016 Cambridge Science Festival

We will present an interactive talk about gallium nitride and a children's workshop about energy-efficient lighting at the 2016 Cambridge Science Festival. The official programme of events for the Department of Materials is downloadable here.

Industrial partnership to deliver cubic nitride LEDs

The group recently received an Innovate UK grant to continue work with Anvil Semiconductors and Plessey to realise cubic nitride LEDs; this has been reported in EE Times. The full article can be read here.

Highest Frequency GaN HEMT Performance

The PowerGaN project has demonstrated the highest frequency x-band performance for a GaN HEMT on low-resistance silicon. The report has been summarised by Semiconductor Technology and the full article can be read here.


Semiconductor Today article from PowerGaN

Reduced gate leakage and current collapse have been demonstrated in GaN-based HEMTs fabricated in the PowerGaN project. This progress has been highlighted in Semiconductor Today magazine; read the full article here.
