Advances in semiconductors

A group of researchers from the Technological Institute of Aeronautics (ITA) achieved international prominence for its scientific advances in the area of magnetic semi-conductors, which may be used in future computer processors and memories.  Professor Ronaldo Pelá, from the Physics Department at ITA, received the Award for Best Article by a Young Scientist during the International Conference on the Physics of Semiconductors held in Zurich, Switzerland.  Awards were given to 15 participants who had presented their PhD dissertations within the previous year and presented a study that has a high impact on the semiconductor area.  A committee made up of researchers from various countries selected the studies.  Developed as part of his doctoral studies at ITA, the paper presented by Pelá was published in the May issue of Applied Physics Letters magazine.
