Professor Sir Michael Pepper

Professor Sir Michael Pepper of the LCN has been awarded an Honorary Fellowship of the Institute of Physics for his outstanding contributions to the field of semiconductor nanoelectronics.

Honorary fellowship is conferred by the Institute on distinguished individuals for exceptional service to physics or a closely related discipline.

Professor Pepper, the first Managing Director of Toshiba Research Europe Ltd, Cambridge Research Laboratory, created a strategy for the business which has resulted in the company leading the development of secure quantum communications.

During his academic career, he was the first to recognise the new physics which would emerge from dimensionality transitions which led to the creation of the field of semiconductor nanoelectronics which is now pursued worldwide.
