In response to increased interest in wide-bandgap (WBG) semiconductor projects by DOE, on October 30, 2012, Sandia hosted a one-day brainstorming workshop aimed at identifying the value, scope, structure, and partnership opportunities of a potential National Center for Wide Bandgap Semiconductors.
Participants from DOE, industry, academia, and other labs participated in a series of breakout sessions, the results of which will inform next steps in WBG research. Significant input was gathered on our four question areas
Workshop participants’ single strongest statement was the need for a national WBG technology roadmap. We are currently exploring plans for just such a road-mapping activity. Because WBGs involve multiple technologies and multiple applications, a technology roadmap will likely be complex and challenging.
