Plenary Speakers

AlGaN Alloys for Next Generation Power Electronics  

Dr. Andrew Allerman (Sandia National Laboratory, USA)

Andrew Allerman is a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff in the Advanced Electronic and Optoelectronic Materials Department at Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, NM. Throughout his career, he has specialized in the development of MOCVD processes for a wide range of compound semiconductor materials and device technologies. His work on AlGaN alloys has spanned more than 20 years developing UV laser diodes and LEDs, UV-sensitive photodetectors, intersubband, electro-absorptive modulators at 1550 nm, and more recently Al-rich AlGaN-channel HEMTs and power diodes along with high temperature MOCVD growth processes for h-BN. His prior work includes MOCVD growth of As-P-Sb and dilute nitride III-V compound semiconductors for mid-IR laser diodes and LEDs, near-IR VCSELs, HBTs, HFETs, HEMTs, solar cells (1 eV) and photonic integrated circuits. Andy is a member of several international advisory boards for III-Nitride semiconductor conferences and has been program co-chairs of numerous conferences. He received his B.S. and Ph. D degrees in Physics from Auburn University.

Dr. Maki Kushimoto (Nagoya University, Japan)

Maki Kushimoto is a Lecturer in the Department of Electronics at Nagoya University, Japan. She received M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electronic Engineering from Nagoya University in 2013 and 2016, respectively. Her research interests are in crystal growth of nitride semiconductors, optical characterization, and de- velopment of devices. In recent years, she has been focusing on the development of deep UV light emitting devices.

Sputtering growth of AlN for high quality template and its application for UV LEDs

Prof. Hideto Miyake (Mie University, Japan)

Hideto Miyake received his MS degree in 1988 from Osaka University. Since 1988, he works at Mie University, and is currently a professor. He received his Dr. of Eng. Degree in 1994 from Osaka University. His research has focused on epitaxial growth and optical-device applications of AlGaN-based nitrides semiconductors. He is a member of the Japan Society of Applied Physics. JSAP Fellow (2020).
