Semiconductor devices for microwave power applications

Throughout the years the research group has worked on the physics-based simulation and design of microwave devices for power applications, first with attention on widegap semiconductor devices  (SiC and above all GaN), extending the interest, during the last few years, to H-terminated diamond devices (within the framework of ESA and ASI projects). Particular attention has been devoted to the development of device and circuit-level thermal models (several PRIN projects and the KORRIGAN European project).
