Determining atomistic configurations is the first step to atomistic modeling of materials properties and often the goal of experimental characterization. While a myriad of computational tools have been used to determine, from first principles, thermodynamically stable atomistic configurations, quasi-equilibrium configurations are less explored. In addition, the combined usage of experimental and computational data has great potential for accelerating the determination of atomistic configurations.

For nearly five decades, silicon has remained as the industry workhorse for solid-state electrical power switching. In the past two decades, there has been a concerted effort to develop Silicon Carbide (SiC) and Gallium Nitride (GaN) power semiconductor switching devices because of their superior electrical and thermal performances compared to silicon power switching devices.
