Klaus von Klitzing (Schroda, 1943) is a German physicist who was awarded the 1985 Nobel Prize in Physics for the discovery of the quantum Hall effect. Klitzing's research focuses on the properties of low-dimensional electronic systems, typically in low temperatures and in high magnetic fields. In July, he took part in the workshop organized by DIPC (Donostia International Physics Center) “Quantum Phenomena in 2D Matter (QP2DM)” within the framework of the UPV/EHU Summer Courses.
We had the honour of interviewing Klaus von Klitzing, who explained to us what the Quantum Phenomena in 2D Matter are. He also talked about his scientific career and showed us his perspective as a Nobel Prize winner regarding current challenges in society, such as artificial intelligence.
