Texas State physicist to lecture at academy



Upper-level students at San Marcos Academy will learn about semiconductor devices and semiconductor manufacturing technology April 4 when a senior lecturer and research professor at the Ingram School of Engineering at Texas State University speaks on campus.

Dr. Lawrence A. Larson, who joined the Texas State faculty in 2001, will present the final lecture in this year’s SMA-Texas State Distinguished Lecture Series at 2 p.m. in the school library. The lecture is open to the public.

Dr. Larson received a B.A. degree in Physics from Whitman College and a Ph.D. in Solid-State Physics from Washington State University. He is the author of over 130 publications.

Previously, Dr. Larson was Associate Director of the FEP Division of SEMATECH, a program that targeted the development of processes and materials needed to manufacture the most advanced semiconductor devices.

This is the third year that the Academy has partnered with Texas State for the Distinguished Lecture Series. The four speakers this year were faculty members at the Ingram School of Engineering.
