Quote: “I deem it indeed a great honor to be selected to receive the TMS John Bardeen award for many reasons, most importantly, the fact that this award was established to honor one of the greatest scientists and engineers of the past century, Dr. John Bardeen. I knew Dr. Bardeen when I was a graduate student at The University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign during the period 1969–1973. I am also honored because this prestigious prize has also been received by others whose work I greatly admire and whom I know personally, including John Goodenough, Nick Holonyak, Jr., and Morton B. Panish. I am honored to receive this award because of the outstanding quality of the work of all of those who have preceded me in receiving this prize. I believe that Dr. Bardeen would appreciate the fact that this prize has been given previously by the TMS to these individuals who have made a big difference in the science and technology of semiconductor materials and who have made this prize important by the quality of their work.”
