William Frensley


B.S., Physics, California Institute of Technology, 1973 Ph.D., Physics, University of Colorado, 1976


William R Frensley specializes in the design and analysis of high-performance electronic devices, particularly those involving semiconductor heterostructures and quantum-mechanical effects.  He demonstrated the first quantum transport simulations of quantum tunneling devices.  He continues to develop  effective conceptual frameworks by which modern nanoscale devices may be understood and optimized.
