Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava / Institute of Electronics and Photonics

The Institute of Electronics and Photonics of the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava is active in microelectronics, nanotechnology, IC and Smart system design and test,  wireless communication, optoelectronics, sensors, power electronics, and organic electronics.

Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava (STUBA) is attended by almost 18000 students and belongs to the leading universities in microelectronics education and R&D activities in the New Member States of EU. STU strives to be an internationally recognized, research-oriented technical university. It seeks to provide a high quality internationally comparable education in the promising (key technologies) fields, based on independent and critical thinking, entrepreneurship and creativity, with a view to practical application and success in life. The university aims to contribute to the economic and social development of the region.

In 2012 STU received the ECTS Label – the most prestigious European certificate awarded in the sphere of tertiary education.

The Institute of Electronics and Photonics of STUBA is active in a field of microelectronics, photonics and sensorics. Its membership in EUROPRACTICE provides access to advanced TCAD modelling and simulation as well as IC design tools. Structure and device characterization and failure analysis either by electrical or analytical and microscopical tools is another strong field of institute activities.

Role & Key Contribution:

STUBA will take part in characterization and analysis of new substrate materials and heterogeneous GaN buffer structures by advanced electrical, analytical and optical methods.STUBA will study breakdown mechanisms in GaN devices, also with the aid of electroluminescence. It will contribute to the study of failure mechanisms of GaN power devices. 2D and 3D electro-thermal simulation of complex structures and experimental analysis of devices to be tested will be another contribution  of STUBA.Based on that STUBA will coordinate Objective 6.2, Parasitic effects characterization and modelling.Further STUBA will prepare and realize a dissemination plan for effective dissemination of obtained results within the consortia, wide scientific community and public society.
