Profile of senior consultant
Dr. Hiroyuki Nagasawa
|1987||He entered Toshiba Corporation as an engineer of VLSI processing technology. He transferred the developed processing technology from laboratory to mass production plants.|
|1989||He entered material development laboratory, Hoya Corporation. He developed a thin SiC film deposition technology for implementing the x-ray lithography.|
|1991||He developed an atomic layer epitaxy technology for forming mono-crystalline 3C-SiC film on six inches Si substrates. This was largest record of mono-crystalline SiC diameter at that time.|
|1997||He got a degree of Doctor of Engineering. The thesis title for doctorate is ‘Mono-crystal 3C-SiC formation through atomic layer epitaxy’|
|1998||He developed a technology for growing mono-crystalline bulk 3C-SiC. He invented unique technologies for enhancing the epitaxial growth rate and reducing the defect density.|
|2002-2006||He established Hoya Advanced Semiconductor Technologies corporation (HAST) as one of the founders. He promoted development of 3C-SiC bulk growth technology. HAST started production of 3C-SiC wafers. He also started 3C-SiC MOSFET and GaN/SiC HEMT developments collaborating with partner laboratories.|
|2006||He developed an advanced homo-epitaxial technology for reducing extended defects in 3C-SiC. This results in implementation of Normally-off 600V power switching MOSFET with highest channel mobility of 370cm²/V/sec.|
|2013||He joind Tohoku University, Research institute of electric communication, as a visiting professor. He is managing research project of SiC and Graphene.|
