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

Published June 1, 2020


SciTechDaily covered the invention by UB engineers of a paper-thin, gallium oxide-based transistor that can handle 8,000 volts and that could lead to smaller and more efficient electronic systems that control and convert electric power in electric cars, locomotives and airplanes.

“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,” said the lead researcher Uttam Singisetti, associate professor of electrical engineering.
