CHPPE Research Highlights


The research at CHPPE is focused on harnessing the strengths of wide band gap (WBG) devices, currently created from Silicon Carbide (SiC) and Gallium Nitride (GaN), in emerging power electronics applications.  These devices have ability to operate at higher temperatures, switch at faster speeds, and achieve better efficiency over their Silicon (Si) based counterparts.  The WBG technology allows designers to realize smaller, more efficiency hardware, as well as develop power electronics for new applications in the aerospace, auto, and utility industry.  Detailed information can be found at the links below:
