5th International Workshop on Bismuth-Containing Semiconductors: Growth, Properties and Devices

There is substantial interest in developing new classes of semiconductor and thermoelectric materials exploiting the properties of bismuth. Such materials are increasingly important for the development of optoelectronic, thermoelectric and electronic devices. These include materials for laser diodes, light emitting diodes, solar cells, transistors and spintronic devices. Following on the success of the previous four annual international workshops on bismuth-containing materials, held in Michigan, Surrey, University of Victoria and Arkansas, this meeting will bring together groups undertaking research in the emerging area of bismuth-containing materials and devices for a focused three-day workshop. This is an interdisciplinary meeting bringing together physicists, chemists, materials scientists and engineers to address this important emerging area. Topics will focus on theoretical activities, epitaxial growth, characterization (optical, electrical and structural) and device performance of interest to both academic and industrial researchers.
Details of invited speakers can be found on our website www.bismides.net
The technical sessions of the workshop will be hosted at Tyndall National Institute July 21-23, 2014. A welcome reception will be hosted in Cork on the evening of July 20, 2014.

The workshop is organized by Prof. Eoin O’Reilly from Tyndall National Institute. If you need more information about this workshop, please send email to mary.oregan@tyndall.ie.


This is the fifth workshop in a series:

The first was held at the University of Michigan in July 2010

The second at the University of Surrey in July 2011

The third at the University of Victoria in July 2012

The fourth at the University of Arkansas in July 2013  

 This Workshop is sponsored by the EU FP7 project BIANCHO  and by the Institute of Physics Semiconductor Physics group.
