Wide-bandgap and 2-dimensional Materials, 5th E-MRS & MRS-J bilateral symposium


We aim to make the symposia an opportunity to contribute toward the development of advanced functional wide-bandgap and two-dimensional (2D) materials. Wide-bandgap materials such as carbides, nitrides, oxides and diamond have been attractive interest for next-generation high-power electronics. 2D materials also provide unique materials platform with rich physics, chemistry and diverse technological applications. Extensive progress has been made in understanding, synthesizing, and characterizing 2D materials such as graphene, and boron nitride. This symposium devotes an exchange of information about the basic material properties of epitaxial layers and substrates, the fabrication processes, and the functional device properties. Interaction between fundamental materials science and applied science will promote our idea and lead to discovery and innovation based on new concept design. Papers related to wide-bandgap materials (SiC, GaN, Ga2O3, diamond, or other materials), 2D materials, and their device applications are solicited, including: (1) material growth and physical properties; (2) process and characterization; (3) device performance and physics; (4) reliability and modeling; (5) novel functional devices and applications.
