Conwell-Weisskopf theory explains electron travel through semiconductors

Dr. Esther Conwell developed the Conwell-Weisskopf theory, which explains how electrons travel through semiconductors, an accomplishment that helped revolutionize modern computing. This achievement earned Dr. Conwell three academic memberships: the National Academy of Sciences, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the National Academy of Engineering. She also pioneered the exploration of DNA electronic properties.
