Osama O. Awadelkarim is a Professor of Engineering Science and Mechanics Pennsylvania State University, USA. he obtained his PhD from Reading UniversityUK. he is active in establishing contacts with Historically Black Colleges and Universities to promote Afro-American undergraduate students in engineering research at Penn State. He Instructed a course in “Semiconductor Devices” broadcast live via interactive compressed video conferencing to engineers in Lucent Technologies, Reading, PA. His research interests are in Power Electronics and Vertical U-Shaped Trench-Gated Metal-Oxide-Silicon Field-Effect Transistors Fairchild Semiconductor, Inc. Research in this area is in progress since 1999 and is conducted in collaboration with Fairchild Semiconductor, Inc. The goal is to develop and characterize a trench (~ 400 nm wide and 2.0 microns deep) structure for use in discrete power U-MOSFET device manufacturing. The focus of the research is on the following main tasks.
