More good news from Omid, his paper entitled ‘Design and Performance Evaluation of SiC MOSFET/JFET Based DC-DC Converters for PV Applications’ has been accepted at the upcoming 2012 IEEE Energy Conversion Congress and Exposition to be held in Raleigh, North Carolina, USA. The reviewers have been very complimentary about the work and hopefully this will result in an oral presentation! As one of the most prestigious conferences in the field, the papers are linked to IEEE Transactions on Power Electronics, which is arguably the place to publish research results in power electronics.

Monday saw the extended abstract deadline for the European Conference on Silicon Carbide and Related Materials (ECSCRM) 2012. We managed to get eight abstracts in for the deadline, which is no mean feat, covering almost the entire breadth of what we do, from graphene growth to the characterisation of oxide layers on SiC CMOS! Without time to catch our breath, the next deadline is Friday, the IEEE Sensors 2012 abstract deadline. This time, we are looking to submit three, graphene sensors, our SiC sensor array and recent work on self starting boost converters for powering sensor nodes.

Tomorrow sees me in Derby to give a presentation at the Electronics, Sensors and Photonics Knowledge Transfer Network meeting. Containing our results and vision for wireless sensor nodes, the slides can be downloaded from here KTN Talk – 3rd May 2012. I am also showing a poster outlining our work, which will hopefully attract lots of attention.
