Author Biography

Hadis Morko? received the B.S.E.E and M.S.E.E. degrees from Istanbul Technical University, Turkey, and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Cornell University, Ithaca, NY. He was employed at Varian Associates, Palo Alto, CA, from 1976 to 1978, where he was involved in various novel FET structures and optical emitters based on then the new semiconductor heterostructures. He held visiting positions at AT&T Bell Laboratories (1978-1979), the California Institute of Technology and Jet Propulsion Laboratory (1987-1988), and the Air Force Research Laboratories-Wright Patterson AFB as a University Resident Research Professor (1995-1997). From 1978 to 1997 he was with the University of Illinois. In 1997, he joined the newly established School of Engineering at the Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond VA. He and his group have been responsible for a number of advancements in GaN and devices based on them. He has been an IEEE-EDS distinguished lecturer since 1996. He holds several patents on various FETs and processes including the basic pseudomorphic MODFET patent, and serves or has served as a consultant to some 20 major industrial laboratories.
