BIOGRAPHY
Nuo Zhang received her B.S. degree in electrical engineering from Tsinghua University in 2008. She is currently pursuing her Ph.D. degree in University of California, Berkeley. Her research interests focus on silicon carbide electronics, and integrated circuits for high temperature applications.

HEaTS: SiC Bipolar Junction Transistors for Harsh Environment Sensing Applications [BPN644]
The goal of this project is to develop silicon carbide (SiC) bipolar junction transistors (BJTs) for harsh environment sensing
applications. The wide bandgap energy (3.2eV) and low intrinsic carrier concentration allow SiC semiconductor device to function at a
much higher temperature than Si. Moreover, high breakdown field (3-5MV/cm), high-saturated electron velocity (2E7cm/s) coupled
with high thermal conductivity (3-5W/cmK) permit extreme working conditions for SiC devices. The SiC BJT has the potential for low
specific on-resistance, low turn-on voltage and high temperature operation, which makes it a suitable candidate for low power, high
temperature applications. This technology will enable the integration of SiC electronic devices with MEMS-based SiC sensors, and
the development of self-powered sensing system with wireless telemetry capability for harsh environment applications.
