||Silicon chips in personal electronics and computers, electronic displays, and the semiconductor lasers used in CD players and for Internet communications, have shaped the world we live in, but will the current paradigm that has driven progress for the past 40+ years continue, or will the 21st Century be a new era of electronics? These questions will be addressed in a seminar by Dr. Dennis Buss followed by a panel discussion with Purdue faculty.
Dennis Buss spent most of his industrial career at Texas Instruments. He began in July 1969, was elected TI Fellow in 1978 and, except for a decade as VP for Technology at Analog Devices, served the rest of his career in technology development leadership positions at TI. In 2007, Dennis became TI Chief Scientist and Visiting Scientist at MIT with responsibility for managing TI-MIT joint research. He retired in 2010, but continues this role as a consultant to TI. Dennis received his BS, MS and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from MIT and served twice on the MIT faculty. He is an IEEE Fellow, the recipient of the 1985 Herschel Award, the 1987 Jack A. Morton Award, and was selected by the Electron Devices Society to receive the IEEE Third Millennium Medal.
