The Institute of Electronics and Photonics of the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava is active in wide range of micro / nano technology, IC and Smart system design and testing. Main research areas are optoelectronics, sensors, power electronics, and organic electronics.
Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava (STUBA) is attended by almost 18000 students and belongs to the leading universities in microelectronics education and R&D activities in the New Member States of EU. STU strives to be an internationally recognized, research-oriented technical university. It seeks to provide a high quality internationally comparable education in the promising (key technologies) fields, based on independent and critical thinking, entrepreneurship and creativity, with a view to practical application and success in life. The university aims to contribute to the economic and social development of the region.
The Institute of Electronics and Photonics of STUBA is active in a field of microelectronics, photonics and sensorics. Its membership in EUROPRACTICE provides access to advanced TCAD modelling and simulation as well as IC design tools. Structure and device characterization and failure analysis either by electrical or analytical and microscopical tools is another strong field of institute activity.
STU strives to be an internationally recognized, research-oriented technical university.
Role in the project
STUBA will contribute to characterization and testing of new wide band gap devices. It will study leakage, trapping and breakdown phenomena in GaN devices by I-V, I-t, C-V and DLTS methods for wide range of temperatures, and by SEM EBIC techniques. Analysis will be supported by fast 2D/3D electro-thermal modelling and simulations of GaN devices and microsystems; methodology, models and calibration will be prepared within.
STUBA will take role of dissemination leader in the project.
STUBA will be complementing the characterization and testing planned within WP 5 and will work together with IMEC and Infineon. Furthermore STUBA will provide device characterization and SEM analysis within WP1 in cooperation with IMEC. In cooperation with Nano, it will work on development and characterization of modern GaN devices and systems in SC and hard switching conditions.
