Muqtadir, who just finished his junior year in Electrical and Computer Engineering at UCSB, is a Center for Energy Efficient Mateials (CEEM) intern working on new ways to improve GaN transistors.

The internship allowed Muqtadir to experience graduate research by working with Matthew Laurent, a member of Professor Mishra’s group. His project deals with characterizing a new material (AlInGaN) for use in high frequency and high power GaN transistors. AlInGaN is hoped to solve the problem of transistors being limited by materials that can’t achieve the right electrical and structural properties at the same time.
