Abstract
There are no commercial amplifiers that can operate at temperatures above 125 degrees Celsius. We will combine two comparable wide bandgap semiconducting materials to make electronic amplifiers and switches that operate at high temperatures (at least 500 degrees Celsius). These devices can be controlled remotely by a light beam. Hence wireless coupling to a room temperature macroprocessor is possible. The vast potential market for these devices includes monitoring and control of engines: diesel engine on trains, ships, ships, subs, trucks and buses; also rocket engines, power stations, nuclear plants, and heating systems.
