Nobel-Laureate Amano To Lecture at Hunt Library

Nobel-laureate Hiroshi Amano, the co-recipient of the 2014 Nobel Prize for Physics, will present a distinguished lecture about semiconductor devices on Wednesday, Oct. 19, from 3-4 p.m. at the Hunt Library auditorium.

Amano, a professor in the graduate school of engineering at Japan’s Nagoya University, was one of three physicists who shared the prize for the their invention of efficient blue light-emitting diodes (LEDs), which have enabled bright and energy-saving white light sources.

His lecture is sponsored by the Office of International Affairs, the department of electrical and computer engineering and the PowerAmerica Institute.

The event is free and open to the public.
