UK MBE Workshop 2015

Monday 23rd March – Tuesday 24th March 2015, Radcliffe House, University of Warwick

I am glad to welcome you to the UK Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) workshop 2015 which will take place at the University of Warwick, on 23rd – 24th March 2015. The workshop has been bringing together the UK research and industrial communities working on Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) each year since 1980’s.

The aim of the workshop is to share experience not only about scientific but also technical aspects of MBE, including users experiences with recent systems installations. Therefore scientific contributions are welcome, as well as those for technical innovations or specific problems. Contributions from exhibitors about the MBE are welcome as well as a series of 15 minute presentations covering all aspects of MBE. There will be an open discussion session covering broader themes where contributions and comments from all attendees is encouraged. Those wishing to give presentations at the event should email the programme secretary (Dr Ian Farrer) with a proposed title as soon as possible.

The main scientific topics include MBE growth and characterization of:

  • Semiconductor structures (III-V, II-VI, group-IV etc)
  • 2D materials (Graphene, Silicene, Germanane etc)
  • Oxides
  • Magnetic materials
  • High and low-k materials
  • Organic materials
  • Low-dimensional structures (Nanowires, Quantum dots etc)

In addition to the talks there will be an exhibition in which companies will have the opportunity to present themselves and their products. The exhibition is situated in front of the lecture hall and provides time and space for interesting discussions and demonstration of the latest equipment and techniques.

The organizing team and I are looking forward to a successful and productive UK MBE Workshop 2015!
