Professor Anthony O'Neill
Newcastle University, Speaker at Sustainable Materials and Nanodevices
Speaking on “Improving Silicon Carbide MOSFETs for a Sustainable More Electric Future”
Anthony O’Neill is a Siemens Professor of Microelectronics at the University of Newcastle. He was Visiting Scientist at MIT, Cambridge, Ma, USA in 1994. He became Royal Society Industry Fellow at Atmel, UK in 2002. He was a Visiting Professor at EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland in 2009 and at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia in 2017. He is known for innovative work on silicon-based technologies. His research interests are in atomic layer interface engineering for nanoelectronics; silicon carbide MOSFETs; biomedical engineering/electronic interface devices; nanoelectronics circuits for medical applications; silicon nanowires: design, fabrication and characterisation; ferroelectrics for nanoelectronics. Current research includes re-engineering of SiC MOSFETs to achieve record electrical performance with channel resistance now approaching Si.
