We support meetings ranging from an afternoon to several days in duration. The character of the meetings varies from those appropriate for first-year postgraduates, to conferences of international standard.

The annual UK Semiconductor conference is a large two-day event at which all interests within the group are represented. We are also keen to support meetings held jointly with other Groups, when common interest makes this desirable.

Such meetings are often concerned with the preparation of complex multilayer semiconductor structures by techniques such as molecular beam epitaxy and metal organic chemical vapour deposition and in the development and application of scientific methods to probe the physics of these structures. Important questions arise in our understanding of the physics of solids when electrons are confined in very narrow potential wells and when carrier movement is restricted to one and two dimensions. A range of new solid-state devices is now being made based on recent discoveries in this area and many more potential devices have been proposed. Thus the device technologists are constantly interacting with scientists probing fundamental aspects of the field and a forum where ideas can be exchanged ideas is particularly important at the present time.

To discuss meeting support with the Group, please contact the group secretary.
