Workshop on Bi-containing semiconductors

International Workshop on Bismuth-containing Semiconductors: Theory, Simulation and Experiment

Following the success of the first meeting held at the University of  Michigan, Ann Arbor, in July 2010 we are organising a three-day workshop scheduled to be held at the University of Surrey, Guildford, United Kingdom, from 18-20 July 2011. 

Topics will include but are not limited to:

  • Epitaxial techniques for growing Bismuth alloys and other metastable semiconductors
  • Theory of the electronic band structure of Bismides and other highly mis-matched alloys
  • Optical, electronic and structural characterisation of Bismide and related alloys
  • Device Physics (photonics, electronics, spintronics and thermoelectrics)
  • System demands and applications

In addition to the technical programme there will be ample opportunity to explore this beautiful and historic part of England.
