Graduate team wins prestigious JSAP Outstanding Paper Award

A team of students at The Ohio State University earned an honor not often bestowed to research outside of Japan.

Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) graduate students Sriram Krishnamoorthy, Zhanbo Xia and Sanyam Bajaj were among the winners of the Japanese Society of Applied Physics Outstanding Paper Award for 2018. The team collaborated with ECE Senior Research Associate-Engineer Mark Brenner and ECE/Materials Science Engineering Professor Siddharth Rajan.

Their research paper is titled "Delta-doped β-gallium oxide field-effect transistor." Essentially, β-Ga2O3 is an emerging ultrawide-band-gap semiconductor, which holds promise for next-generation wideband-gap devices owing to the availability of high-quality substrates grown by melt-based techniques and its ability to achieve a wide range of conductivity.

Xia recently traveled to Nagoya to receive the award and give a commemorative talk on the topic.

The JSAP Outstanding Paper Award is presented to the authors of work published in the membership journal (OYO BUTURI), Japanese Journal of Applied Physics (JJAP), and Applied Physics Express (APEX). These awards honor the authors of papers that are regarded as exceptional achievements in applied physics.
