Defects in Semiconductors (GRS)
Gordon-Kenan Research Seminar

From Fundamental Concepts to Practical Implications


August 2-3, 2014


Bentley University
Waltham, MA


Audrius Alkauskas

Associate Chair:
Mark T. Durniak

Meeting Description

The GRS on Defects in Semiconductors, to be held for the first time, is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas in this important field.

The focus of this particular meeting will be defects in wide band-gap semiconductors, nanostructured materials, including novel two-dimensional systems, as well as defects for quantum information processing and metrology applications.The program will include a mentorship session on the transfer of knowledge and technology from academia to industry.

Related Meeting

This GRS was held in conjunction with the "Defects in Semiconductors" Gordon Research Conference (GRC). Refer to the associated GRC program page for more information.
