Join leading scientists for a unique learning experience on what a future in science can offer secondary students.
The panel will share their views on topics such as:
- Careers in Science
- How semiconductors contribute to solving the energy crisis?
- What is a quantum sensor?
- What is it like to win a Nobel Prize?
Students can submit questions through the registration form and will have the opportunity to provide questions to the panelists from all science disciplines on the day.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY: International Conference on the Physics of Semiconductors, Centre for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology
Prof. Dr. Klaus von Klitzing, Nobel Laureate
Prof. Dr. Klaus von Klitzing was born in 1943 in Schroda. He received his PhD from the University of Würzburg in 1972. After research stays in England, USA and France he became in 1980 Professor at the Technical University in Munich and in 1980 director at the Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research in Stuttgart, Germany. He has been awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1985 for the discovery of the Quantum Hall Effect. This quantum effect opened a new research field and initiated the introduction of a new international system of units based on constants of nature.
