New Material Offers a Revolutionary Approach to Power Electronics

New Material Offers a Revolutionary Approach to Power Electronics

Researchers at the University of Utah and the University of Minnesota have discovered that when two oxide compounds — strontium titanate (STO) and neodymium titanate (NTO) — are joined together, they make an extraordinary conductive material that could vastly improve power transistors . The researchers have shown that these two materials—which on their own operate as insulators—are up to five times more conductive than silicon. In research described in the journal APL Materi als , scientists found that the bonds between the atoms from the oxide compounds arrange themselves in a way that generates 100 times more free electrons than conventional semiconductors, which means the new material can transport more electrical current. The main application for a material with this level of conductivity would be in power transistors that regulate electrical current in electronic devi...
