    Description

    The project, you will be involved in, will focus on novel group III-nitride semiconductor structures intended for the next generation power electronics applications. Your specific duty will be to perform advanced characterization of AlGaN/GaN interfaces grown on GaN andSiC substrates via metal organic vapor phase deposition (MOVPE). The interface structures will be characterized at the atomic level using cutting-edge analytical and in-situ transmission electron microscopy (TEM) methods at LiU’s microscopy laboratory. These investigations will emphasize the atomic interface structures, structural defects, compositional profiles, thermal and electrical stability as well as degradation mechanisms. The PhD project will be part of the Center for III Nitride Technology C3NiT-Janzén and the Network for Low-defect-density III Nitrides for green power. The research will be undertaken in a large collaborative setting, involving researchers at LiU, Lund University and Chalmers University of Technology as well as industrial project partners. You as a candidate will therefore be involved in a large number of parallel projects, where you are required to contribute in addition to pursuing your own research.
