  • The history and future of semiconductor heterostructures from the point of view of a Russian scientist, Zhores I. Alferov,

    The Nobel Prize in Physics 2000

  • Until now, the main approach when it came to creating electronic devices was a process that created "heterostructures" - materials with sharply defined, alternating layers of semiconductors, such as silicon and germanium.

  • With such "heterostructures" one is not limited to the band-gaps provided by semi-conducting materials like silicon and germanium.

    The Nobel Prizes in Physics 1901-2000

  • Electronic devices are often made of "heterostructures," meaning they contain sharply defined layers of different semiconducting materials, such as silicon and germanium.

  • Russian physicist Zhores Alferov and the German-born Herbert Kroemer, a professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara, split the rest of the award for developing "semiconductor heterostructures," used in everything from amplifiers for mobile phones to laser light sources for CD players and fiber-optic telephone lines.

  • An AlxGal-xAs system of lattice-matched heterostructures, which in practice seemed to be a lucky exception, was infinitely expanded on the basis of multi-component solid solutions, first theoretically and later on experimentally (InGaAsP is the most convincing example).
