Millie Dresselhaus has had a great influence in several generations of scientists,

theorists and experimentalists. We had the pleasure to collaborate with her and

also our students had this pleasure. Since one image is worth a thousand words,

we show in this poster pictures which show Millie’s legacy and some of the very

nice moments we had the privilege to share with her.
