for project titled “Green light emitting diodes for the ultimate solid-state lighting“. The U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) is pleased to announce its inaugural Summer Internship Program for rising Juniors and Seniors at Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) in the Summer of 2024. Known as Inspiring New Transformations in Energy Research by Emerging Scientists and Technologists (INTEREST), this […]
for project titled “Diamond Photoconductive Semiconductor Switches“. The photoconductive semiconductor switches offer very fast bypass capability at as low a level of integration as possible to prevent power outages that affects half a million Americans on average daily and costs American households $150 billion annually. Yet, the traditional PCSS, invented in 1970, cannot reach the […]
Prof. Bayram delivered the Northwestern University ECE Distinguished Seminar titled “(Ultra)Wide Bandgap Semiconductor Revolution” on Nov. 21, 2023. Thank you, the Wildcats, for the love of semiconductors.—The 21st century is the age of semiconductors. In all aspects of modern life, we utilize semiconductor technologies. From lighting to communication and computing to transportation, we rely on semiconductors […]
Prof. Bayram is honored to be recognized as the Intel Alumni Endowed Faculty Scholar in the ECE Illinois. Many thanks to University of Illinois faculty research and the talents of its alumni contributing to the success of one of the country’s leading high-tech companies, Intel. With the stipend, ICORLAB will be able to further its […]
The goal is to explore and innovate electronic grade cubic GaN, that can enable widebandgap superjunction power electronics, a critical electronic device towards ONR’s mission.
Higher Educational Initiative in Semiconductors (HIVE), led by University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) and co-led by Stanford University and Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology (RHIT), will prepare a diverse, next-generation workforce via experiential learning (online and hands-on) for the US semiconductor industry and microelectronics industry to help maintain its technological leadership. The HIVE is founded […]
Prof. Nick Holonyak – inventor of the light-emitting diode (LED) and a contributor to the first practical quantum well laser, which enabled modern fiber optics communication. Your bright light will be with us forever.
titled “Cubic-phase III-nitrides for Next Generation Quantum Devices” at the The World General Congress for Optics and Photonics of the International Commission for Optics (ICO) and the international society on Optics Within Life Sciences (OWLS), Dresden, Germany.
Open Boundary Quantum LED Simulator (OBQ-LEDsim) is the next-generation self-consistent quantum-corrected drift-diffusion simulator that eliminates artificial boundaries between quantum wells and classical continuum. It Eliminates the discontinuities of carrier concentrations caused by the artificial boundary conditions, Numerically captures the wavefunction penetration into barriers and other regions, Models the recombination rates outside active regions with higher […]
Grainger Small Equipment Grant Program, sponsored by the Grainger College of Engineering, awarded MRL to acquire the state-of-the-art Oxford OptistatDry TLEX closed cycle cryostat for advanced, temperature-dependent photonics research.
