Materials professor Chris Van de Walle is the first researcher to hold the Kroemer Chair in Materials Science

“I’m extremely honored,” said Van de Walle, of the endowment named after Herbert Kroemer, UCSB emeritus professor and 2000 Nobel Laureate. “I’m a great admirer of Herbert Kroemer, and I feel very privileged to be chosen to be the inaugural recipient of the chair that bears his name.” - See more at:
