Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava / Institute of Electronics and Photonics

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.

In 2012 STU received the ECTS Label – the most prestigious European certificate awarded in the sphere of tertiary education.

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.

STUBA will take part in characterization and analysis of new substrate materials and heterogeneous GaN structures by advanced electrical, analytical and optical methods. STUBA will study leakage, breakdown and trapping mechanisms in GaN devices and will contribute to the study of failure mechanisms of GaN power devices. 2D and 3D electro-thermal simulation of complex structures and experimental analysis of devices to be tested will be another contribution of STUBA.

Key Contribution

Main contribution will be in WP1 and WP5. In WP1 STUBA will contribute to nanoscale characterization of AlGaN/GaN structures by complementary microscopic, optical and analytical methods. In WP5 will focus on study of leakage, breakdown and trapping phenomena by I-V, C-V and DLTS methods. Further STUBA as a Dissemination leader will prepare and realize a dissemination plan for effective dissemination of obtained results within the consortia, wide scientific community and public society.
