May 31-June 4, 1998 · La Jolla, California
NINTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON METAL ORGANIC VAPOR PHASE EPITAXY
Sponsored by The Minerals, Metals, & Materials Society (TMS) and the American Association for Crystal Growth, the Ninth International Conference on Metal Organic Vapor Phase Epitaxy (ICMOVPE-IX), will be held May 31 through June 4, 1998, at the Sheraton Grande Torrey Pines Hotel, La Jolla, California.
To register for the meeting on-line, use the ICMOVPE-IX Registration Form. The deadline for advance registration is May 15, 1998. In addition, if you plan to attend, you can secure housing reservations by downloading the housing reservation form, which is available in portable document format (readable using the free Adobe Acrobat software).
ICMOVPE-IX builds upon the strong tradition of previous conferences of presenting the latest advances in the science, technology, and applications of MOVPE and related growth techniques. The objective of the conference is to bring together a wide spectrum of specialists from industry, commerce, academia, and national laboratories to present their most recent progress in the fundamental and applied aspects of MOVPE technology. The program for this meeting can be viewed using the TMS Conference Management System. A complete version of the at-meeting program (including paper titles and abstracts) is available for download as a portable document format (PDF) file (viewable and printable using Adobe Acrobat). The program is designed to provide a wide range of opportunities for formal and informal discussions of and presentations on all topics of interest, including
- Growth and doping mechanisms
- Surface physics and chemistry during growth
- In-situ probes, real-time monitoring and process control
- Selective area growth
- Novel growth mechanism and techniques
- Nitrides: growth, defects, characterization, and devices
- Quantum wells, wires, and dots
- Growth of device structures
- Infrared materials and devices
- High power, high temperature semiconductor materials and devices
- Blue light-emitting devices and lasers
- Production and safety issues
- Growth of thermoelectric and thermo-photovoltaic materials and devices
Late News Papers will be included in the Workshop prior to the poster session on Tuesday evening. Late news presentations will begin at 7:30 p.m. and run until 8:00 p.m.
The conference proceedings will be reviewed in a special issue of the Journal of Crystal Growth. Submit your manuscripts Monday-Wednesday at the Elsevier desk located in the Canyon Room.
