The 34th North American Conference on Molecular Beam Epitaxy (NAMBE 2018) is a prominent international forum for reporting scientific and technological developments in Molecular Beam Epitaxy research.
The conference showcases important results from fundamental materials and device research, through technological applications, and into high-volume and low-cost production. NAMBE features the presentations of the MBE Innovator Award, the NAMBE Young Investigator Award, and the Best Student Paper awards.
In addition to a diverse technical program, vendors will exhibit the latest equipment available for material growth and characterization. The exhibit will surround the coffee breaks and poster presentations, providing many opportunities for discussions between attendees and vendors.
The main NAMBE conference will be followed by a 1-1/2-day workshop featuring a Cross-Cutting Session on Heteroepitaxy and focused sessions on five related topics:
- Zbig Wasilewski, University of Waterloo
- Steve Ringel, The Ohio State University
- Gene Fitzgerald, Massachussetts Institute of Technology
Focused Session 1: 2D Materials
- Christopher Hinkle, University of Texas Dallas
- Roland Kawakami, The Ohio State University
- Sergei Novikov, University of Nottingham
Focused Session 2: Layered Heteroepitaxy
- Siddharth Rajan, The Ohio State University
- Jacek Furdyna, University of Notre Dame
- Susanne Stemmer, University of California Santa Barbara
Focused Session 3: Topological Insulators
- Maria Tamargo, City College of New York
- Stephanie Law, University of Delaware
- Anthony Richardella, Penn State
Focused Session 4: Low Bandgap Antimonides
- Roberto Myers, The Ohio State University
- Minh Nguyen, HRL Laboratories
- Sergey Suchalkin, SUNY Stony Brook
Focused Session 5: Metamorphic Antimonides
- Neil Baril, U.S. Army Night Vision & Electronic Sensors Directorate
- Stephanie Tomasulo, Naval Research Laboratory
- Tyler Grassman, The Ohio State University
Workshop Co-chairs: Stephanie Law (University of Delaware); Amy Liu (IQE); Sanjay Krishna (The Ohio State University)
The workshop sessions will take place for the full day on Thursday Oct. 4 and for the morning of Friday Oct. 5. The workshop is designed to accommodate all interested participants and is organized into six 90-minute sessions with ample time for discussions.
The workshops are designed to supplement the broad program of NAMBE with a very informal forum for presenting best practices, work in progress and for brainstorming selected issues. Controversial and puzzling topics are strongly encouraged. It is our hope that the timing – right after the NAMBE conference- together with the Banff location will make the workshops a worthwhile and unforgettable experience.
