Jack Kilby of TI, who invented the integrated circuit, and Professor Herbert
Kroemer of the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB), who devised
semiconductor heterostructures, won the physics prize this week. The Royal Swedish
Academy of Sciences also conferred a physics prize on Russian Zhores I. Alferov,
who worked in parallel but separately from Kroemer on heterostructures. From eeTimes.com.
