Technologies on wide bandgap semiconductor materials and devices continue to make excellent progress, and the intense activities have already led to many applications. Thanks to the success of these efforts, a variety of materials, including both traditional wide bandgap semiconductors represented by SiC, GaN and ZnO, and emerging ultra-wide bandgap materials (e.g. Ga2O3, diamond, and boron nitride), are now subjects of research and development. This special topic aims to provide the state-of-the-art wide bandgap material and device technologies.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- Bulk and substrate technologies
- Epitaxial growth technologies
- Optical, electronic, and thermal properties
- Theoretical calculations
- Low-dimensional structures and devices
- Optical devices (light emitters and detectors)
- Electronic devices (transistors and diodes)
- Quantum and novel applications
