JERUSALEM—A new approach
to the synthesis of semi-conductors,
which may prove beneficial to the
electronics industry, has been ini-
tiated by the department of in-
organic chemistry of the Hebrew
University of Jerusalem.
Heading the study is Dr. Jacob
Shamir, senior lecturer in the de-
partment, who has recently re-
ceived a 10,000-pound grant from
the university's Robert Szold Cen-
ter for Applied Science in order
to complete the research.
One of the main features of
the project will be an attempt to
form new complexes of already
known chemical groups in order
to obtain higher purity and simpler
instrumentation and working con-
The project involves various
semi-conductors, some of which
are used in the field of transistors
and other electronic devices.
