8th International Workshop on Epitaxial Growth and Fundamental Properties of Semiconductor Nanostructures

The broad and vibrant field of semiconductor nanostructures produces significant breakthroughs in semiconductor technology where Moore's law hits quantum mechanics. Nanostructured semiconductor materials exhibit fascinating new physical properties, which can be applied in opto-electronic devices such as lasers, devices for lighting technology, optical amplifiers, memory devices, and devices for quantum cryptography.

The 8th SemiconNano 2021 will feature talks by cutting-edge scientists who will discuss their recent findings in nanostructures’ basic formation processes including fundamental physical properties and device fabrication as well as theoretical modeling. The SemiconNano 2021 will bring together a collection of investigators who are at the forefront of their field, and will provide opportunities for junior scientists and graduate students to present their work and exchange ideas with leaders in the field.

The SemiconNano conferences are known for their unique informal and focused atmosphere, which encourages not only open, inspiring discussions of published and unpublished research and ideas but also gives the opportunity to network with researchers from around the world. The schedule for the SemiconNano 2021 will provide plenty of time for the discussions of presented talks, and also for the interaction of conference attendees. At the same time, the intimate atmosphere of the SemiconNano 2021 will allow them to have more exposure of their work within the community and make important connections.

The aim of the SemiconNano 2021 will be to link the fundamental aspects of semiconductor nanostructures, such as growth, characterization and theory to their use in novel applications in devices.

Topics will include:

  1. Semiconductor nanostructures based quantum information

  2. Spin phenomena in semiconductor nanostructures

  3. Semiconductor nanostructures for Micro- Opto- electronics applications

  4. Nanowires

  5. 2D materials and topological insulators

  6. Fundamentals of semiconductor nanostructure growth
