2021 Recipient, James J. Coleman, Talks Paradigm shifts in Semiconductor Layers

James L. Coleman

In the EE times article, James Coleman talks about Strained Semiconductor Layers and how for 40 years since the invention of the transistor, there was one inviolable rule about multiple epitaxial layers of different materials: heterostructures.

As the demand expands for semiconductors other than silicon, managing the growth of otherwise mismatched crystal layers is likely to lead to more advances in photonics and optoelectronics.
