2020 Lawrence Symposium on Epitaxy

The Lawrence Symposium on Epitaxy provides a forum for presentations and discussions of recent developments, critical issues and potential future directions in the investigation of epitaxy. This forum will address fundamental and practical challenges in materials that are used in advanced photovoltaic, light emitting diode, high power, high speed digital and microwave devices.

We hope to attract university, government and industrial researchers. We will ask our industrial colleagues to focus on pre-competitive technologies and anticipate that their open participation will raise the competitiveness of all participating companies.

Areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Kinetics and thermodynamics of growth
  • Engineered precursors for CVD, MOCVD and MBE synthesis
  • State of the art in-situ and ex-situ characterization methods
  • Integration of dissimilar materials
  • Materials properties and influence on device behavior

The 2020 Symposium will start Sunday evening February 16 and end at 1:00 PM Wednesday, Feb. 19. Attendees can register at a welcoming reception from 6:00 – 8:00 PM on Sunday. Sessions will include invited and contributed presentations.

One page abstracts, of any format, can be submitted to the LawrenceSymposium@asu.edu before Jan. 15, 2020.

The event will comprise 12 invited talks lasting 45 minutes and some additional submitted talks. Participation is limited to 100 attendees to keep it interactive and yet comprehensive.
