22nd International Conference on Electronic Properties of Two Dimensional Systems (EP2DS-22)

18th International Conference on Modulated Semiconductor Structures (MSS-18)

Scope of the conference    

EP2DS features fundamental physics arising in two-dimensional systems – such as semiconductor quantum wells, graphene, topological insulators, oxide heterostructures, and transition metal dichalcogenides – as well as in quantum wires and quantum dots. More specifically, it includes

  • Electronic, optical and magnetic properties
  • Fractional quantum Hall effect
  • Majorana fermions
  • Spin related phenomena
  • Quantum information
  • Superconductivity and metal-insulator transitions
  • Novel probes and experimental techniques

MSS places greater emphasis on synthesis, processing, characterization, and applications of modulated systems. A broader range of novel materials is included. The specific topics are:

  • Semiconductor heterostructures and superlattices
  • Electronic and optical properties of quantum dots and nanowires
  • Physics of excitons, optomechanics, and terahertz-related phenomena
  • Nanophotonic structures including photonic crystals and metamaterials
  • Spintronics and spin phenomena in modulated structures
  • Physics and devices for quantum information processing
  • Carbon nanotubes, graphene, and other carbon-based materials
  • Novel modulated and hybrid structures, including MEMS/NEMS, 2D crystals, organic and bio-based structures
  • Advances in growth, processing, and probing of modulated structures
