has been Director of the Semiconductor Materials Interdisciplinary Research Centre (IRC) based at Imperial College, University of London, since 1988. He studied chemistry at the University of Birmingham and then joined the Allen Clark Research Centre of the Plessey Company in 1958, before moving to Philips Research Laboratories in Redhill, where he worked from 1969 to 1988. He was awarded a D.Sc.(Chemistry) by Birmingham University in 1973. He has held a number of visiting professorships and has received several prizes for his work in molecular beam epitaxy. His research interests are the physics and chemistry of semiconductor surfaces and thin films.

Collaboration with Japanese industry, universities, and government agencies is essential for any internationally recognized semiconductor research center. Since being established in 1989, the University of London Semiconductor Materials Interdisciplinary Research Centre has developed many such programs. Tha aims, organization, research, and results of one program “Atom Arrangement: Design and Control for New Materials” are described and the role of the “combination of cultures” highlighted.
