50 years in the semiconductor underground

David K. Ferry

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This book has grown out of a talk I gave at the International Conference on Advanced Nanodevices and Nanotechnology in Hawaii a few years ago. For some reason, the conference was dedicated to me, and so I had to give the introductory lecture, which more or less covered a few of my contributions to the field. The book presents my personal views about science, engineering, and life, illustrated by a number of stories about various events, some of which have shaped my life. In the telling of these to my colleagues, some have been humorous, so perhaps that will come through the words that make this book. And sometimes, the claims of others, which have stretched the meaning of reality, have seemed so ridiculous as to encourage a bit of laughter.
