"CHIPS: Growth envisioned for semiconducting crystals"
Rudolf "Ruud" Tromp described his groundbreaking work in the study of the growth of organic-semiconducting crystals, such as pentacene, which is being applied in flat-panel display technology. Tromp's work today follows naturally from pioneering research he initiated at IBM's T.J. Watson Research Center in 1983. Indeed, the work he began there in understanding the structure and growth of semiconductor surfaces and interfaces has been rewarded by the American Physical Society, which has presented him with its Davisson-Germer Prize in Atomic or Surface Physics.
