Before bringing the meeting to a close, Dr Faramehr, Swansea University, was awarded for the project presentation entitled “Integration of GaN Magnetic Sensors with Inductor for Galvanic Current Monitoring” at the CPE 18 as the presentation was placed 1st by all referees.

Dr Faramehr, lead researcher on both of the winning projects, said “I am delighted to have won this award. Recent R&D programmes won by ESDC demonstrate the high level of compound semiconductor technology activities at Swansea University towards compound semiconductor cluster establishment in South Wales.”

Dr Igic, Head/Director of the ESDC said: “I am very happy with this award and the recognition for our ground-breaking work in the area of wide band-gap technology and devices. The R&D work, based on our split-drain current sensor patent, has been done in cooperation with the Compound Semiconductor Centre (CSC) and Sheffield University and with support from EPSRC CPE of Nottingham University.”
