Questions Regarding Funding Opportunity Announcements

Please contact the ARPA-E-CO@hq.doe.gov email address for questions regarding Funding Opportunity Announcements. Upon the issuance of a FOA, only the Contracting Officer may communicate with Applicants. ARPA-E personnel and our support contractors are prohibited from communicating (in writing or otherwise) with Applicants regarding the FOA. This “quiet period” remains in effect until ARPA-E’s public announcement of its project selections.

ARPA-E will not pre-assess an Applicant’s proposal. Prospective Applicants must review the technical requirements of the FOA and independently determine whether their proposed concept warrants a submission.

DE-FOA-0000942: STRATEGIES FOR WIDE-BANDGAP, INEXPENSIVE TRANSISTORS FOR CONTROLLING HIGH EFFICIENCY SYSTEMS (SWITCHES)

This program seeks to fund transformational advances in wide bandgap (WBG) materials, device fabrication, and device architectures. The goal of this program is to enable the development of high voltage (1200V+), high current (100A) single die power semiconductor devices that, upon ultimately reaching scale, would have the potential to reach functional cost parity with silicon power transistors while also offering breakthrough relative circuit performance (low losses, high switching frequencies, and high temperature operation). These transformational technologies would have promise to reduce the barriers to ubiquitous deployment of low-loss WBG power semiconductor devices in stationary and transportation energy applications.
