Aalto University team finds beryllium doping can benefit gallium nitride power electronics

Green Car Congress

Physicists at Aalto University in Finland, with colleagues in Texas and Poland, have shown that beryllium doping can prove beneficial in gallium nitride (GaN) power electronics. To make electronic devices that can process the amounts of power required in, say, electric cars, we need structures based on large-area semi-insulating semiconductors with properties that allow minimizing power loss and can dissipate heat efficiently.
