In each episode of this podcast, our resident hosts Melena and Geoff will illuminate a tech topic from different perspectives. They meet first-class experts taking you on a deep-dive into a world that makes life smarter, safer and more sustainable. Made for people who love tech, and a good story — from astronauts to AI, from crime forensics to coders, from hoverboarders to flying trays. From KNOW-HOW to WOW.
Silicon carbide: efficiency booster for e-mobility
In our new episode of “From KNOW-HOW to WOW”, we are talking about change — which is often exciting, but rarely frictionless. Our e-mobility experts Bruno Schuster and Jan Alsmeier, who works in process management, explain why they swapped silicon for silicon carbide in semiconductor production. Spoiler alert: this was a pretty challenging change. In any case, it could be a true leap forward in e-mobility technology because tiny amounts of silicon carbide in an electric car can have a big impact on the vehicle’s weight and energy efficiency. To learn more about the material, we also take you to space: Siddharth Tiwari from the German Start-up Tiwari Instruments explains why silicon carbide also has a lot of potential for satellites and telescopes. ...and speaking of change: this is also the first episode of our new co-host Shuko. Will there be any friction between her and Geoff? ;-) We’ll find out!
