Annual IET Kelvin lecture: “Manipulating Electrons: The Engineering of Physics”

The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) is hosting its annual Kelvin lecture, as part of its Prestige Lecture Series on Tuesday 27 October at 18:30 and will take place at the newly refurbished IET headquarters at Savoy Place, London.

The lecture will be given by Professor Sir Michael Pepper, who is Pender Professor of Nanoelectronics in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering and Honorary Professor of Physics at University College London (UCL).

His lecture will discuss the structure of advanced semiconductor devices and his pioneering work in helping to develop them for modern usage.

As well as offering a theoretical insight into the workings of semiconductor structures, he will also share examples of their pioneering application in equipment like terahertz cancer imaging, which has helped in the detection of the disease in patients. He will also suggest the role semiconductors will play in the future particularly when it comes to the storage of data and in quantum computing.

Naomi Climer, IET President-elect, said: “The IET prides itself on giving a platform to some of the world’s most knowledgeable and innovative speakers from the fields of engineering and science. Professor Pepper is no exception and his lecture will offer real insight for delegates into the worlds of electrical and electronic engineering.

What’s more, this year’s delegates will be given an even greater treat, as they will be some of the first to experience the IET’s prestigious Savoy Place headquarters in London as it reopens following an exciting two-year refurbishment. All of our speakers will be giving their lectures from state-of-the-art lecture theatres which have played host to some of the greatest global minds for over 125 years.”
