Abstract / Description:The author belongs to the first generation of graduate students
Bill Paul supervised at Harvard. He learned from Bill the
physics of semiconductors, especially under high pressure, and
also how to manage a research group. Last, but not least, he
also learned from him the rules of ethics of the scientific
endeavor which seem to be often forgotten in recent times. The
"Bill Paul Experience" left a permanent imprint on the
speaker's future career. After a short biographical sketch, the
article discusses the scientific lineage of Bill Paul and
presents a bibliometric analysis of his publications. This is
followed by a discussion of what the speaker and the Institute
of Scientific Information (ISI) believe are Bill's most
important contributions to Semiconductor Science, in particular
the application of high pressure to the investigation of the
band structure of semiconductors and the wide field of
amorphous materials.
