Caption: Herbert Kroemer (born 1928), German-US physicist. Kroemer studied at the University of Gottingen, Germany, starting out on a career of research in semiconductor physics based in both Germany and the USA. From 1968 to 1976, he taught at the University of Colorado. His inventions include the drift transistor in the 1950s, and work on semiconductor heterojunctions in the 1960s. It was the latter that led to him being awarded a share of the 2000 Nobel Prize in Physics. Earlier, in 1997, he has been elected as a member of the US National Academy of Engineering. In 2003, he became a member of the US National Academy of Sciences.Restrictions:
