Study: Paper-thin gallium oxide transistor handles more than 8,000 volts

Published June 1, 2020


The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)  publicized a paper by electrical engineering professor Uttam Singisetti on a gallium oxide-based transistor as part of its Eureka Alerts.

"To really push these technologies into the future, we need next-generation electronic components that can handle greater power loads without increasing the size of power electronics systems," says the study's lead author, Uttam Singisetti, who adds that the transistor could also benefit microgrid technologies and solid-state transformers.
