SMP 2/20/10 | Light and Semiconductor Devices | Speaker: Vanessa Sih

Saturday, February 20, 2010
12:00 AM
170 & 182 Dennison Building

Speaker: Professor Vanessa Sih (Physics)

Today’s computers, solar cells, and digital cameras would not exist without semiconductor technology. Professor Sih will examine the important role that light plays in making and better understanding these devices and in developing future technologies, such as spintronics. She will also explore the increasing role of semiconductors as light sources and detectors, and in new optical devices that could enable faster communications and data transfer.
