S14: Crystalline materials for electrical, optical and medical applications

This session will provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of recent research and development activities on crystalline materials. The session will cover all aspects, from basic research and material characterization, through physicochemical aspects of growth, synthesis and deposition techniques, to the technological development of industrialized materials. For this purpose, worldwide experts in the different topics will be invited to introduce their most recent activities. The broad scope of the session assures a wide overview of the state-of- the-art issues on crystalline materials, aiming to stimulate interdisciplinary discussions and collaborations in a wide range of fields.


Proposed session topics

  • Semiconductors for LED/LD, power device, sensor
  • Optical materials for laser, nonlinear optics, optical isolator, phosphor
  • Scintillators for X-, gamma- and neutron detection
  • Piezo-, ferro- and magneto-electric materials
  • Transparent ceramics and nanocrystals
  • Phase diagrams, defect chemistry, crystalline quality
