Title: Smaller, Faster, Tougher: Silicon carbide will soon supplant silicon in hybrid cars and the electric grid

Abstract

Some technological revolutions are flashy, and some are almost invisible. We're quite familiar with the flashy ones; they've given us powerful computers we can hold in the palms of our hands, devices that can pinpoint our locations by way of orbiting satellites, and the ability to bank and shop without leaving our homes.
