The Conference will cover all aspects of basic and applied research, laying special emphasis on unique physical and material properties of II-VI semiconductors and their nanostructures.

The conference is an international forum aimed to review and stimulate the progress in basic and applied research on II-VI semiconductors, to facilitate the exchange of new ideas and to establish new scientific contacts.

The official language of the conference will be English.

The topics include, but are not limited to theoretical and experimental research in:

Infrared, visible and UV materials, structures and devices
Growth and characterization
Theory and band structure
Doping and defects
Optical and electrical properties
Spin-related phenomena
Photonic engineering
Solar cells
Colloidal quantum dots and nanocrystals
Nanorods and nanoparticles
Superlattices and nanostructures
Magnetic semiconductors
Hybrid organic-inorganic structures
X- and Gamma-ray high energy sensors
New experimental techniques
New materials and devices

Review Lectures will be presented on Sunday, August 21, 17:00 hrs. Leading scientists will highlight pioneering directions opened by II-VI’s, as well as new trends and opportunities.
