170 & 182 Dennison Building
Speaker: Cagliyan Kurdak, Associate Professor (U-M Physics)Unlike metals, the electrical properties of semiconductors are dominated by the impurities or the dirt in them. Thus, the emergence of semiconductors as a material of choice for the electronics industry was most surprising. This lecture will explore the remarkable scientific breakthroughs in semiconductors that made the growth of the electronics industry possible.
All talks are free and refreshments will be served. Visitor parking for the seminars (Central Campus) is across the street from the Dennison Building in the U-M Church Street structure. There is a $2.00 parking charge implemented by U-M Parking Services.
