Translucent’s Michael Lebby, Announced As Guest Speaker At CS International Conference, Frankfurt

CS International are pleased to announce Michael Lebby, General Manager & Chief Technology Officer-Translucent Inc has been confirmed as a guest speaker for the Compound Semiconductor industry's premier international event, CS International, which will held in Frankfurt, Germany on 4th & 5th March 2013. His presentation will be on The Challenges and Opportunities of Using Epitaxial Gan, Gesn, and Rare Earth Oxides on Large Format Silicon Wafers for Power Electronics, Solar, and Lighting.
In April 2010, Lebby joined Translucent based in California to head up the company’s R&D efforts to commercialize rare earth oxides for epitaxial based materials that have been developed over the past decade. Crystalline based semiconductor rare-earth oxides exhibit a number of attractive properties for advanced substrate and device solutions that include GaN-on-Si for solid state lighting and power electronics, Ge-on-Si for CPV solar, and GaAs based photonics and electronics.

He led the drive for green photonics while heading OIDA in the mid-2000s. The adoption and acceleration of this new discipline has become a significant focus for the photonics industry.

His career has spanned all aspects of the optoelectronics business ranging from research and development, operations, manufacturing, and finance, to sales, marketing, and investing.

With more than 180 USPTO utility patents issued in the field of optoelectronics, he has been cited by the USPTO to be in the most prolific 75 inventors in the country from 1988-1997.

He is a Fellow member of IEEE and OSA, and has testified on behalf of the optoelectronics industry while working for OIDA on Capitol Hill. Also has given numerous talks, speeches, panel discussions, and interviews, on the subject of optoelectronics internationally over the past two decades. Lebby has 2 doctorates and a MBA from the University of Bradford in the UK.

Michael will join the two day event with speakers coming from a wide range of organisations including leaders from Intel Corporation, Aixtron, Epistar Corporation, RF Micro Devices (RFMD), TriQuint Semiconductor and over 30 other leading chipmakers giving their perspective on the latest developments in device technology.

Professionals from around the world will attend this two day event to hear key insights and opportunities, from a range of leading analysts, and learn of the latest chip developments in LEDs, solar cells, lasers and power and RF electronics.

Delegates will have the opportunity to network with leading industry professionals of the III-V chip making industry and interact with suppliers.

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
