Wide Bandgap Semiconductors: Key to Carbon Neutrality?

Carbon neutrality is a popular goal among technology companies. Google has been a trailblazer in this effort, achieving zero carbon emissions in 2007 and claiming to have erased its entire carbon footprint as of 2017. Since then, many semiconductor companies have committed to this altruistic goal, aiming to reduce annual emissions by 30%. WBG Semiconductors and Carbon Neutrality¬† WBG Semiconductors have a greater valence-band-to-conduction-band energy gap than silicon. As a result of this property, WBG semiconductors can operate at higher temperatures and voltages than silicon. The ability of SiC power…
