Prof. Can Bayram is the Intel Alumni Endowed Faculty Scholar and a tenured Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and a resident faculty at the Nick Holonyak, Jr Micro and Nanotechnology Laboratory, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, IL. He is an expert in III-V materials and photonic and electronic devices. His current research interests lie in the intersection of (ultra)wide bandgap materials, their hetero-structures, and photonic and electronic semiconductor devices. The 21st century is the age of semiconductors. In all aspects of modern life, we utilize semiconductor technologies. From lighting to communication and computing to transportation, we rely on semiconductors for comfort, safety, and sustainability. Today, we are switching to solid-state lighting for halving our lighting electricity usage, 5G communication for networked devices, and autonomous systems for land/sea/air transportation. Our reliance on semiconductors is only to evolve as solid-state lighting extends into horticulture and medicine, new communication spectra above 95 gigahertz open opportunities for 6G and beyond networking, and space exploration leads to space settlements. Prof. Bayram understands, controls, and exploits semiconductor technologies and creates an innovative research and education platform considering the needs of not only the current but also of the next generation. In this talk, he will share his group’s recent breakthroughs on cubic III-nitride for lighting and beyond and diamond electronics
for electricity grids.
