A comprehensive introduction and up-to-date reference to SiC power semiconductor devices covering topics from material properties to applications

Based on a number of breakthroughs in SiC material science and fabrication technology in the 1980s and 1990s, the first SiC Schottky barrier diodes (SBDs) were released as commercial products in 2001.  The SiC SBD market has grown significantly since that time, and SBDs are now used in a variety of power systems, particularly switch-mode power supplies and motor controls.  SiC power MOSFETs entered commercial production in 2011, providing rugged, high-efficiency switches for high-frequency power systems.  In this wide-ranging book, the authors draw on their considerable experience to present both an introduction to SiC materials, devices, and applications and an in-depth reference for scientists and engineers working in this fast-moving field.  Fundamentals of Silicon Carbide Technology covers basic properties of SiC materials, processing technology, theory and analysis of practical devices, and an overview of the most important systems applications.  Specifically included are:

  • A complete discussion of SiC material properties, bulk crystal growth, epitaxial growth, device fabrication technology, and characterization techniques.
  • Device physics and operating equations for Schottky diodes, pin diodes, JBS/MPS diodes, JFETs, MOSFETs, BJTs, IGBTs, and thyristors.
  • A survey of power electronics applications, including switch-mode power supplies, motor drives, power converters for electric vehicles, and converters for renewable energy sources.
  • Coverage of special applications, including microwave devices, high-temperature electronics, and rugged sensors.
  • Fully illustrated throughout, the text is written by recognized experts with over 45 years of combined experience in SiC research and development.

This book is intended for graduate students and researchers in crystal growth, material science, and semiconductor device technology. The book is also useful for design engineers, application engineers, and product managers in areas such as power supplies, converter and inverter design, electric vehicle technology, high-temperature electronics, sensors, and smart grid technology.

Advocating For Children In Foster And Kinship Care

RRP $241.99

In order to guide children successfully through their time in foster or kinship care, caregivers and practitioners must begin to advocate for the child before he or she is placed with a family, and then both need to combine their fight until permanency for the child is established. Few resources explain the best ways to navigate the labyrinthine, and at times frustrating, institution of foster care, not to mention the dynamics of the foster or kinship relationship once the child enters a home. Additionally, caregivers who raise their relatives' children also seek a relatable resource.Mitchell Rosenwald and Beth N. Riley introduce the first book to offer strategies for effectively advocating for youth in foster and kinship care, paying special attention to the consequences of the trauma youth may experience. Advocacy must be consistent throughout a child's assignment and adjustment, and this text teaches practitioners the best methods for assessing a family's abilities and level of commitment, while guiding families through the various challenges of the foster care system. Part one details the important steps that potential foster parents and kinship caregivers should consider, with the assistance of practitioners, when contemplating caring for youth. Part two addresses advocacy within service providers, such as family court, social service agencies, schools, and the medical and mental health establishments. Part three describes lobbying for agency and legislative change, as well as change within a given community. Case examples ground recommendations in concrete contexts, and an entire chapter discusses how to broker a successful partnership between practitioners, families, and other disciplinary teams.
