This episode explores a special material called gallium nitride (GaN) that is not only a super-efficient semiconductor but is also changing the tech industry and is destined to disrupt the established silicon industry. GaN tech could save 10% of the electricity consumption in the US alone. And consumers can already purchase products using this high-tech material. To further explore this fascinating material, I interview the multi-award-winning professor Martin Kuball.
This episode will explain:
What gallium nitride (GaN) isThe properties that make this material extraordinaryWhat advantages GaN has compared to siliconHow GaN is disrupting the silicon industryWhat challenges there are when developing GaN devicesThe common misconceptions people have about GaN and what aspects are over-hypedWhat it really takes to go from research to groundbreaking innovation and how much effort goes into producing next-generation technologiesHow our future could look like once GaN and next generations batteries are widely deployedWhat types of skills researchers need in order to go from research to productAnd finally, the biggest surprises and breakthroughs my guest has had during his career as a scientist
