S6: Ceramic Materials in Power Electronics (wide-band gap integration, high power capacitors)

Register Today!

Efficient power electronics are in increasingly high demand to support electrical grid, transportation, and renewable power handling. Electronic ceramics and their integration with traditional semiconductor power devices have the potential to play a large role in this growing field. In particular, integration of ferroelectrics with wide bandgap semiconductors is an active and promising field of research. In addition, high energy density capacitors based on ceramics or polymer/ceramic nanoparticle composites show potential for significant increases in energy density for multiple applications in transportation and power electronics. This symposium will provide a forum for academic, industrial, and national laboratory researchers to present and discuss the latest advances and fundamental research in the area of bulk, thick film, thin film and nanoparticle electronic ceramics for power electronic applications.
