1.  Prof. Raphael Tsu, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, USA
Plenary Talk: Resonant Tunneling from Inception to Applications
Speaker Biography: Professor Raphael Tsu (with Tsu replaced by Zhu in pinyin) is a world leader in the areas of quantum properties of materials and device physics. An acknowledged authority in these subjects Professor Tsu has published nearly two hundred scholarly papers in scientific journals; an author of a monograph on quantum wells and superlattice materials and devices of which he is a co-inventor, holder of several patents for his discoveries and invention. The description of his research contributions while at the IBM, T.J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights was presented to the White House by the US Army Research Office, The Superlattice Story, played an important role in the 90’s towards the US National Nanoscience Initiative (NNI).

Summary: After a brief review why resonant tunneling was introduced during the pursuit of man-made superlattices, several key systems utilizing resonant tunneling serve to illustrate the inter-relationship among these applications, for example, as matching section to allow the transfer of excitations, as well as selectively couple the input/output. The unique difference between tunneling through quantum wells and quantum dots will be discussed.
