The aim of the joint conference
The conference enables the exchange of recent scientific advances in the broad field of electronic properties of two-dimensional systems and modulated semiconductor structures. There will be plenary and invited talks given by speaker who are expert in the field and contributing to the current progress. This will give early career researcher the opportunity to see the latest advances and furthermore to present and discuss their latest achievements.
„EP2DS“ features fundamental physics arising in two-dimensional systems which as well includes emergent materials such as graphene, topological insulators, and transition metal dichalcogenides. Students of the elite network International Doctorate Program “Topological Insulators” will be able to see the latest advances in the exciting fields of topological insulators and topological superconductivity.
„MSS“ places greater emphasis on synthesis, processing, characterization, and applications of modulated systems including semiconductors and a broader range of novel materials. More specifically, the focus is on heterostructures and superlattices, quantum dots and nanowires, as well as devices for quantum information processing.
The EP2DS/MSS will be held in one of Germany's most beautiful cities, Würzburg, lying at the northern starting point of the Romantic Road and right in the heart of Franconia. The participants will have the opportunity to visit one of Germany's biggest wine-producing areas. The city itself is set in a wonderful location next to the River „Main“ and offers a wealth of history which centers around the Prince-Bishops and their two main residencies, the „Marienberg Fortress“ and the „Würzburg Residence“, the latter of which is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
