WBG 2014

The Workshop on Defects in Wide Bandgap (WBG) Semiconductors will be held at the University of Maryland in College Park, Maryland (near Washington, DC) on the 23rd of September, 2014. The main objective of this one-day workshop is to bring together nation's leading experts in the WBG supply chain to identify fundamental research needs in WBG materials for advancing power electronics switching applications.

A Small Gift to Dr. Loh Makes a Big Hit

UMD president Dr. Wallace Loh (center) receives a personally engraved gold and silicon wafer, a key component of semiconductor and micro-machine fabrication. The wafer, created by Dr. Jim O'Connor of the Maryland NanoCenter (left) shows logos of the other Big Ten Schools, of which University of Maryland is the newest school, surround the central disk.

NanoCenter FabLab
