10 August 2006

Professor Michael Kelly is the recipient of the 2006 Royal Society’s Hughes Medal ‘in recognition of an original discovery in the physical sciences’.  Professor Kelly’s research has advanced the physics of tunnelling and hot electron injection in semiconductor multilayers, leading to two new generation microwave devices now in production.  The major work was done while an employee of the then GEC, but some of the research was undertaken in Cambridge.  Professor Kelly continues to research the manufacturability of tunnel devices.

On July 1 2006, Professor Kelly also commenced an appointment as Chief Scientific Advisor to the Department for Communities and Local Government (a three-day-week appointment for three years). Professor Kelly is also a non-executive director of the Laird Group PLC.
