Project Description

Gallium Nitride (GaN) vertical devices have the potential to enable new and highly efficient high voltage applications for a low carbon society such as electric vehicles. To date, a few research groups have reported on the successful fabrication of GaN vertical devices on silicon due to the considerable challenges associated with crystal growth, reliability and fabrication process.

The successful PhD candidate will simulate, optimize and characterize a novel vertical GaN FET prototype using TCAD Synopsys Sentaurus and high voltage probe station with CV and pulse measurement capabilities.

The successful candidate will work alongside the research team within the £50M unique world-class Centre for Advanced Low-carbon Propulsion Systems (C-ALPS). During the PhD project, the student will have the leverage to work closely with world-leading industrialists.

We seek candidates with an excellent academic record in physics, electronics or similar subject. Specific experimental skills are not required, but self-motivation and a can-do attitude are.

Benefits

Training and Development:
• Our research is underpinned by a £250M investment in research and facilities.
• The successful candidate will receive comprehensive research training including technical, personal and professional skills.
• All researchers at Coventry University (from PhD to Professor) are part of the Doctoral College and Centre for Research Capability and Development, which provides support with high-quality training and career development activities.
• The successful candidate will work alongside the research team within the £50M unique world-class Centre for Advanced Low-carbon Propulsion Systems (C-ALPS).
• During the PhD project, the student will have the leverage to work closely with world-leading industrialists.

Candidate specification

Entry criteria for applicants to PHD
