Why Nanowires Could Be a Big Thing for Electronics Liam Critchley
Nanowires are 1D nanomaterials with efficient electron transport properties where the electrons flow along the long axis of the wire. The electronic conductivity properties, which are realized through quantum effects, could be useful for a range of innovative electronics.

The Chemistry Behind Inorganic Solar Cells Liam Critchley
Inorganic solar cells are the most common and efficient solar cells and rely on many different aspects of chemistry to function. Without chemistry, it would not be possible to create the internal current generation mechanisms that enable solar cells to harness sunlight, and here we explain how.

Infineon Technologies CoolSiC™ Works in the Trenches Paul Golata
Infineon Silicon Carbide CoolSiC™ MOSFETs and Diodes provide a portfolio that addresses the need for smarter, more efficient energy generation, transmission, and consumption. Infineon’s trench MOS technology is leading the way in power management.

Apex Microtechnology Webinars Focus on SiC Tommy Cummings
Broderick Krager, Apex Microtechnology applications engineer, will lead two webinars that will examine how to maximize the benefits of SiC using hybrid technology to create switching amplifiers in high-power density packages.

Understanding the Chemistry of Semiconductor Junctions Liam Critchley
Chemistry plays a major part in why semiconductor materials behave the way they do, and why current can flow through a p-n semiconducting junction. Here, we discuss what effect chemistry has on these junctions, including some of the mechanistic variations that exist in electronics today.

Protect Embedded Interfaces with These Clamps and Crowbars Bourns
Protecting interface connections from overvoltage conditions and transient events is more important than ever with the proliferation of embedded electronics. Bourns clamp and crowbar protection is effective at protecting circuit interfaces in silicon and ceramic electronic components.

GaN the Giant Killer? Barry Manz
Gallium nitride (GaN) has evolved from a promising laboratory curiosity to a major force in RF power generation in less than a decade. Much has been made of its inherent advantages, leading to projections that it will displace gallium arsenide and silicon LDMOS. However, for a variety of reasons GaN is more likely to complement its more entrenched rivals than displace them.
