Nitride Semiconductor Devices
Wide band gap nitride semiconductors and devices represent one of the fasted growing fields in R&D, meeting the demand created by the expansion of lighting applications and emerging high voltage switches for e.g. all electric vehicles or distributed power generation systems. This book, written by an expert in the field, introduces the reader to the fundamental issues, thus enabling him/her to follow the latest technological research. Connecting material and device issues from a practical point of view, the author provides essential knowledge to advanced students, researchers and young professionals on fundamentals and operation of light emitters, RF FETs and switching devices for power electronics. A concise overview of nitride semiconductors from the material's properties through device characteristics, which complements the acknowledged three-volume handbook written by the same author.
