The Future of Electricity

Richard Zhang
Technology Executive, GE Power Conversion

We are living in a dynamic global power environment. We all need the same thing—affordable, sustainable, reliable power, and the demand is growing. While the power sector is leading the way towards a decarbonized energy system, electricity gains ground in many sectors and will make up about 25 percent of final energy consumption by 2040, as estimated by IEA.

Building Blocks for GaN Power Switches

A team of engineers from Cornell University, the University of Notre Dame and the semiconductor company IQE plc has created gallium-nitride (GaN) power diodes capable of serving as the building blocks for future GaN power switches — with applications spanning nearly all electronics products and electricity distribution infrastructures. Along with having many desirable features as a material, GaN is notorious for its defects and reliability issues. So the team zeroed in on devices based on GaN with record-low defect concentrations to probe GaN's ultimate performance limits for power electronics. They describe their results in a paper in the journal Applied Physics Letters.
