Defects in Semiconductors (GRS)
Gordon Research Seminar

Identifying, Understanding, and Using Defects in Semiconductors


August 13-14, 2016


Colby-Sawyer College
New London, NH


Mark T. Durniak & Natalie Segercrantz

Meeting Description

The Gordon Research Seminar on Defects in Semiconductors 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.

This meeting will focus on identifying, understanding, and then controlling defects in order to use their properties to engineer new materials and devices. Defects for power devices, two-dimensional structures, and quantum information will be explored.

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.
