  • Status of Silicon Carbide (SiC) as a WideBandgap Semiconductor for HighTemperature Applications: A Review

    Silicon carbide (SiC), a material long known with potential for high- temperature, high-power, high-frequency, and radiation hardened applications, has emerged as the most mature of the wide-bandgap (2.0 eV Eg 7.0 eV) semiconductors since the release of commercial 6H-SiC bulk substrates in 1991 and 4H-SiC substrates in 1994. Following a brief introduction to SiC material properties, the status of SiC in terms of bulk crystal growth, unit device fabrication processes, device performance, circuits and sensors is discussed. Emphasis is placed upon demonstrated high-temperature applications, such as power transistors and rectifiers, turbine engine combustion monitoring, temperature sensors, analog and digital circuitry, flame detectors, and accelerometers. While individual device performances have been impressive (e.g. 4H-SiC MESFETs with fmax of 42 GHz and over 2.8W mm-1 power density; 4H- SiC static induction transistors with 225W power output at 600 MHz, 47% power added efficiency (PAE), and 200 V forward blocking voltage), material defects in SiC, in particular micropipe defects, remain the primary impediment to wide-spread application in commercial markets. Micropipe defect densities have been reduced from near the 1000 cm-2 order of magnitude in 1992 to 3.5 cm-2 at the research level in 1995. Copyright © 1996 Elsevier Science Ltd

  • Biomass Burning: Remote Sensing and Global and Geographical Distribution

    The burning of biomass - forests, grasslands, and agricultural fields after the harvest - is much more widespread and extensive than previously believed; most biomass burning is thought to be initiated by humans and is on the increase. This comprehensive volume is the first to consider biomass burning as a global phenomenon and to assess its impact on the atmosphere, on climate, and on the biosphere itself. The 63 chapters by 158 scientists - including leading biomass burn researchers from third-world countries, such as Brazil, Nigeria, Zaire, India, and China, where biomass burning is so prevalent - point to biomass burning as a significant driver of global change on our planet.Global Biomass Burning provides a convenient and current reference on such topics as the remote sensing of biomass burning from space, the geographical distribution of burning; the combustion products of burning in tropical, temperate, and boreal ecosystems; burning as a global source of atmospheric gases and particulates; the impact of biomass burning gases and particulates on global climate; and the role of biomass burning on biodiversity and past global extinctions.Also included are contributions on the importance of biomass burning from the International Geosphere-Biosphere Program: A Study of Global Change and from the International Global Atmospheric Chemistry Project, as well as policy options prepared by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for managing biomass burning to mitigate global climate change.Joel S.

  • An Overview of HighTemperature Electronic Device Technologies and Potential Applications

    High-temperature electronics applications are found in combustion systems, well logging, industrial processes, air stagnation points in supersonic aircraft, vehicle brakes, nuclear reactors, and dense electronic packages. We summarize physical effects and materials issues important for reliable operation of semiconductor device technologies at high temperatures (>125°C). We review the high-temperature potential of Si, GaAs, other III-V compounds, and SiC. For completeness, we also comment on nitrides, diamond, and vacuum microelectronics. We conclude that Si on insulator (SOI) technology can be developd readily for small signal operation up to about 300°C. There is some ongoing work in this area. GaAs offers little advantage over Si because of poor device isolation and the lack of reliable contacts above 250°C. Other III-V compounds could be developed for operation to 600°C, using processes similar to those used for optoelectronics. There may be a market niche for III-V power devices above 200°C. There is considerable activity in semiconducting SiC, and device functionality has been demonstrated above 600°C. SiC is promising for operation above 300°C, and for power devices at frequencies from de to 10 GHz, but it faces numerous challenges to achieve manufacturable status. We attempt to match technologies with application areas.

  • Gas Turbines

    This chapter discusses the basic design and components of a combustion turbine. Gas Turbines operate in a fashion similar to steam turbines. Both the steam turbine and gas turbine convert the thermal energy contained in the media that is supplied to the turbine into mechanical energy. Instead of using steam as the media for the transfer of energy, gas turbines use air or gas. In the typical combustion turbine, there are at least six fundamental components to the combustion turbine required to achieve the conversion of energy to mechanical energy. These are air inlet, compressor, combustion system, turbine, exhaust and support systems. To achieve combustion, we need the three elements of the combustion triangle; an oxygen source, a fuel source, and a heat source. Various types of instrumentation are necessary to monitor the status of the operating combustion turbine and provide the control system with the necessary feedback.

  • Reciprocating Engines

    Smaller generators may use diesel oil or gas???fired reciprocating engines for their prime movers. Reciprocating engines are smaller in power ratings than their turbine counterpart prime movers, so the connected generator will have a smaller kVA rating. This chapter discusses the basic ideal Otto thermodynamic cycle. The thermodynamic process for the ignition combustion engine is defined by the Otto cycle, which is similar to the Brayton combustion cycle that describes the combustion process for gas turbines where there are four processes in the combustion cycle: compression, combustion, expansion, and exhaust. There are two main types of reciprocating engines: two???stroke and four???stroke engines. Theoretically, in the process of the ideal Otto cycle, the entire combustion process takes place instantaneously at top dead center (TDC). For some types of fuel, the combustion is initiated with a spark plug while for other types, the compression alone generates enough heat to cause combustion.

  • Joule-Heating Actuators

    Many exciting innovations were put forth in areas of Magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) propulsion, remote energy deposition for drag reduction, plasma actuator, radiation-driven hypersonic wind tunnel, sonic boom meditation, and enhanced plasma ignition and combustion stability. The plasma heating consists mainly of Joule-heating and stochastic heating; the latter however is nearly negligible except in an oscillating plasma sheath. The Joule-heating concentrates within the cathode layer and is a rather small but effective spatial heat source to the surrounding gas stream. The interactions between aerodynamics and the surface electron impact discharge have been simulated by computational electromagnetic aerodynamics using a multifluid, drift-diffusion weakly ionized gas model. Surface pressures were recorded for a variety of magnetic field strengths and electric currents for all combinations of electrode and magnet polarity. Small perturbations in a boundary layer by a shallow bump can produce a profound change to the dynamic structure of a flow field.

  • Hydrogen's Discovery: Phlogiston and Inflammable Air

    Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe. An invisible, tasteless, colorless gas, it can be converted to nonpolluting, zero-emission, renewable energy. When burned in an internal combustion engine, hydrogen produces mostly harmless water vapor. It performs even better in fuel cells, which can be 2.5 times as efficient as internal-combustion engines. Zero- emission hydrogen does not contribute to CO2-caused global warming. Abundant and renewable, it is unlikely to be subject to geopolitical pressures or scarcity concerns. In this new edition of his pioneering book Tomorrow's Energy, Peter Hoffmann makes the case for hydrogen as the cornerstone of a new energy economy. Hoffmann covers the major aspects of hydrogen production, storage, transportation, fuel use, and safety. He explains that hydrogen is not an energy source but a carrier, like electricity, and introduces the concept of "hydricity," the essential interchangeability of electricity and hydrogen. He brings the hydrogen story up to date, reporting on the latest developments, including new hydrogen and fuel-cell cars from GM, Daimler, BMW, Honda, and Toyota. He describes recent political controversies, including Obama administration Energy Secretary (and Nobel laureate in Physics) Steven Chu's inexplicable dismissal of hydrogen--which puts him at odds with major automakers, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and others. Our current energy system is a complex infrastructure, and phasing in hydrogen will take effort and money. But if we consider the real costs of fossil fuels--pollution and its effects, international tensions over gas and oil supplies, and climate change--we would be wise to promote its development.
