This book begins with the memory of the invasion of China by Japan, of a child under five years of age, from a prominent Catholic Family, living under the French quarter of Shanghai, protected from the Japanese invader until Pearl Harbor. His love of physics eventually led him to work for the leading scientific laboratories, Bell Labs, IBM, etc. Discovery of new technologies is largely by accidents, while discovery of the world we live in is mainly by careful observations, such as the discovery of the planet Pluto. He suggested that Darwin’s theory of survival of the fittest should include survival of the best Technology. Evolution and disasters involve the rate of change. Any sudden changes too fast to be adapted lead to disasters. Therefore, what is good, usually allows sufficient processes to respond to sudden changes. Discovery of radically new technologies is largely by accidents, while discovery of our world is by careful observations, such as the discovery of the planet Pluto. As a naturalized American citizen for 50 years, he has something to say for the great American Society. We need to keep on top in circumstances such as economy and defense, not forgetting that it takes careful planning and execution in every category including research and development that brought this nation to the top in the 20th century!

About the Author
Raphael Tsu, Distinguished Professor
Department of ECE, University of North Carolina at Charlotte email@example.com, 704 687-8435
Professor Raphael Tsu (with Tsu replaced by Zhu in pinyin) is a world leader in the areas of quantum properties of materials and device physics. An acknowledged authority in these subjects Professor Tsu has published more than two hundred scholarly papers in scientific journals; an author of a book "Superlattice to Nanoelectronics" dealing with materials and devices of which he is a holder of many patents for his discoveries and inventions. The description of his research contributions with Dr. Leo Esaki while at the IBM, T.J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights was presented to the White House by the US Army Research Office, The Superlattice Story, played an important role in the 90's towards the US National Nanoscience Initiative (NNI). Dr. Tsu is a Distinguished Professor of Electrical Engineering as well as Optical Science and Engineering at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. He is a fellow of the American Physical Society and ex-member of International Advisory Board of the Microelectronic Journal, Elsevier; winner of an Outstanding Contribution Award - IBM 1975; Alexander von Humboldt Award - 1975; Co-winner Am. Phys. Soc. International New Materials Prize - 1985. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society. He has a Google citation number of 15,000 with h-index of 50. He received the best paper award at the 6th ICNFA'15 In Barcelona, "Overcoming Losses in Metamaterials", for the discovery of energy stored within the Bohr orbit of H-Atom as a reactive energy transfer to the H-atom within the Bohr Orbit. Recently he received the Bank of America Arts and Science Award 2016.
