University of Padova will coordinate Workpackage 5 on reliability and defect research, and will contribute specifically to the study of physical degradation modes and mechanisms of GaN power devices. It will analyze in detail deep level effects in devices manufactured in the framework of UltimateGaN.

Key Contribution

UNIPD will contribute through defect-characterization and reliability methodologies, by carrying out short-term degradation tests and by studying trapping effects and breakdown phenomena.
