CANCELLED - 19th Hermann Staudinger Lecture with Nobel Laureate Zhores Alfreov, February 3rd, 2015


Semiconductor revolution of the 20th century and its importance today

Zhores Alferov began working in the area of semiconductor heterostructures in the ‘60s. His contributions to physics and technology of semiconductor heterostructures, especially investigations of injection properties, development of lasers, solar cells, LED's, and epitaxy processes have led to the new field of heterostructure physics and electronics.

In 2000 Zhores I. Alferov, Herbert Kroemer and Jack S. Kilby were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics 2000 "for basic work on information and communication technology", with the focus of Alferov and Kroemer on “semiconductor heterostructures used in high-speed- and opto-electronics”.
