Stephen E. Saddow is a Professor of Electrical Engineering and member of the Biomedical Engineering Faculty, College of Engineering, at the University of South Florida, Tampa, FL USA. He has been an active researcher in the field of SiC Technology since 1992, when he pioneered the use of 6H-SiC for high-power optical switching. Since this early work, he has specialized in the development of various SiC processing methods, most notably CVD of 3C-SiC on Si. In the last decade he has focused on the use of 3C-SiC for biomedical applications and has been developing SiC-based continuous glucose monitoring systems and neural implants. He has over 150 published papers, 3 books, several book chapters and has several patents, awarded or pending, on the use of SiC for biomedical applications. He has held several visiting researcher/professor positions in Italy, Germany, France, and more recently Brazil.

Since the production of the first commercially available blue LED in the late 1980s, silicon carbide technology has grown into a billion-dollar industry world-wide in the area of solid-state lighting and power electronics. With this in mind we organized this book to bring to the attention of those well versed in SiC technology some new developments in the field with a particular emphasis on particularly promising technologies such as SiC-based solar cells and optoelectronics. We have balanced this with the more traditional subjects such as power electronics and some new developments in the improvement of the MOS system for SiC MOSFETS. Given the importance of advanced microsystems and sensors based on SiC, we also included a review on 3C-SiC for both microsystem and electronic applications.
