British GaN researcher receives Royal Society award

University of Bristol's Martin Kuball receives Wolfson Research Merit Award

Martin Kuball, Professor of Physics at the University of Bristol, has received a Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award for his research, 'Gallium Nitride Diamond Electronics - Novel Thermal Management Concepts'.

Funded by the Wolfson Foundation and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, the Wolfson Research Merit Award scheme aims to provide universities with additional support to enable them to attract science talent from overseas and retain respected UK scientists of outstanding achievement and potential.

GaN reduces weight, increases efficiency and cuts energy consumption. However, power densities can reach levels equal to the surface of the sun.

The research focuses on how to keep these GaN devices as cool as possible, for example using their integration with the highest thermal conductivity material known to mankind, diamond; and on the reliability and lifetime of these new technologies.
