Dr. Saskia Schimmel has been focusing on nitride semiconductors as a basis for electronic components ever since her doctoral degree in 2018.

New materials make electronics more energy efficient

The smartphone in your jacket pocket, LEDs for lighting your home and electronics for your charger, solar panels or your electric vehicle all have one thing in common: they depend on semiconductor materials and their properties. Researchers at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) are researching how to make such devices more powerful, compact and energy efficient. Dr. Saskia Schimmel from the Chair of Electronic Components at FAU is hoping to achieve a breakthrough with special material properties of new nitrides in order to make electronic components as efficient as possible.
