30.06.2017 8th International Workshop on Bismuth-Containing Semiconductors - July 23rd - 26th, 2017
Annual interdisciplinary workshop bringing together physicists, chemists, materials scientists and engineers from all over the world will be held in Marburg
The International Workshop on Bismuth-Containing Semiconductors is an interdisciplinary workshop that annually brings physicists, chemists, materials scientists and engineers together to address important issues and accelerate research and development of emerging semiconductor compounds and alloys that contain bismuth. The workshop was founded by the participants of the Materials World Network: III-V Bismide Materials for IR and Mid IR Semiconductors, in 2010. During the three years of the Materials World Network program these folks served as the steering committee, program committee, and hosts of the workshop venue. The founders continue to serve on the steering committee to guide the workshop into the future. Starting from 2013 the workshop venue was broadened to include hosts in the global bismuth materials community with locations at the University of Arkansas in the US in 2013, the Tyndall Institute in Ireland in 2014, the University of Wisconsin-Madison in the US in 2015, and the Shanghai Institute of Microsystem and Information Technolgy in Shanghai, China, in 2016.
The 8th International Workshop on Bismuth-Containing Semiconducutors will be held in Marburg, Germany, with a Welcome Reception on July 23rd, 2017, and scientific sessions on 24th - 26th July, 2017. Workshop topics focus on theoretical activites, epitaxial growth, characterization (optical, electrical and structural) and device performance of interest to both academic and industrial researchers. The substantial interest in developing these new classes of semiconductors, thermoelectric materials and topological insulators is driven by their potential applications in the development of low power and energy efficient optoelectronic, thermoelectric, and electronic devices, inclucing laser diodes, light-emitting diodes, solar cells, transistors, and spintronic devices.
