Power Electronics’ Mark Loboda featured in Power Electronics Technology Magazine
November 2012 issue of Power Electronics Technology magazine features a
Dow Corning cover photo and invitedarticle by Mark Loboda, Chief
Scientist, Power Electronics. Entitled “Design Considerations for SiC-based
Power Electronics,” Mark explains how SiC properties are recognized as being
advantageous for the fabrication of power devices. Geared to the designers and
engineers of power electronics, the article also explains that, although
substrate costs and defect densities are decreasing, SiC is not yet as mature
and consistent as silicon. However, it was quickly pointed out that significant
progress is underway to more fully understand the cause-and-effect
relationships between the variations and defects in SiC substrates and devices.
