Sir Michael’s talk will describe recent developments in the use of semiconductor devices for showing the basic principles of quantum physics and how these principles are of importance in practical applications. Sir Michael formed the Semiconductor Physics research group at the Cavendish Laboratory, Cambridge. He was awarded the Royal Society’s Royal Medal in 2005 for his "work which has had the highest level of influence in condensed matter physics and has resulted in the creation of the modern field of semiconductor nanostructures”. He was knighted in 2006.
