PROJECTS           Projects done during internship at IMEC

                  Fabrication and characterization of the GaN High electron mobility
                   transistors with field plates to allow device operation at higher drain
                   Promoter: Prof. Gustaaf Borghs Work done under the guidance of Joff
                  Optimization of annealed ohmic contacts on GaN HEMTs
                   Promoter: Prof. Gustaaf Borghs Work done under the guidance of Joff

                  Effect of thickness of SiN passivation layer on the GaN HEMT
                Promoter: Prof. Gustaaf Borghs Work done under the guidance of Joff

            B.Tech project

               Simulation of point defects in GaN as a function of material
                stoichiometry. The project aimed at improving the activation of
                Magnesium as a p-type dopant, by studying its interaction with the
                native defects present in the material.
