Mobility Spectrum Analysis of Carrier Transport in Semiconductors:

Is it necessary and who cares?


Lorenzo Faraone is a Member of the Order of Australia (AM), and a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (FIEEE), the Australian Academy of Science (FAA) and the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering (FTSE). He has published more than 250 international journal papers on his research work, and supervised more than 35 PhD student completions. He is currently Head of the Microelectronics Research Group (MRG) at The University of Western Australia (UWA), and Director of the WA Centre for Semiconductor Optoelectronics and Microsystems (WACSOM). Prior to joining UWA in 1987, he worked primarily in the area of silicon CMOS-based microelectronics and non-volatile memory technology with RCA Labs in Princeton, NJ, USA. Since joining UWA he has worked on compound semiconductor materials and devices, including AlGaN/GaN HEMTs, HgCdTe-based infrared sensor technology and MBE growth, as well as optical MEMS technologies for infrared spectroscopy and imaging applications. His research activities also include mobility spectrum analysis techniques for magneto-transport studies, which allow the transport properties and mobility distributions of individual carriers in multi-layer/multi-carrier semiconductor systems to be determined.
