Thin Film and Crystal Growth Mechanisms (GRS)
Gordon-Kenan Research Seminar

Note: This conference is currently known as "Crystal Growth and Assembly (GRS)".


July 16-17, 2011


University of New England
Biddeford, ME


Milea J. Kammer

Associate Chair:
Michelle A. Groce

Meeting Description

The Gordon-Kenan Research Seminar on Thin Film & Crystal Growth Mechanisms is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

The focus of this meeting is to present and discuss cutting edge research on mechanisms that control crystal and thin film growth. Topics will include (i) bridging vapor and solution crystal growth, (ii) surface/interface kinetics, (iii) mediating crystallization/self-assembly, (iv) low dimensional materials (films, particles, and wires), and (v) interdisciplinary aspects of crystal growth mechanisms.

This GRS was held in conjunction with the "Thin Film and Crystal Growth Mechanisms" Gordon Research Conference (GRC). Refer to the associated GRC program page for more information.
