Bagwell Lecture Series

The Bagwell Lecture series was established in honor of Professor Philip F. Bagwell, who passed away in 2002.  Professor Bagwell did pioneering work on mesoscopic electron transport, on semiconductor-superconductor heterojunctions, and on related devices.  His interest was in the underlying physics. His quest was for fundamental understanding and his objective was to boil down complex problems down to clear descriptions and fundamental contributions.  He thought deeply about problems, but also had a broad range of interests.
