Klaus Ploog to cover the future of the compound semiconductor industry at CS Europe Conference

July 14, 2010
Date Announced: 14 Jul 2010 Klaus H. Ploog is one of the pioneers of molecularbeam epitaxy (MBE). The MBE technique has been established in the early1970s, i.e. long before the hype on “Nano“ started to dominate the word wide research funding policies in the late 1990s. Using molecular beam epitaxy, he has designed and fabricated numerous new semiconductor and magnetic nanostructures that showed unique quantum size effects. These man-made nanostructures have led to a number of novel device concepts, includinghigh-electronmobility transistors (HEMTs), quantum well and quantum dot lasers, quantum cascade lasers, etc. His research achievements have been published in more than 1500 papers in international refereed journals, and he has received several prestigious awards. His current interest for the subject of sustainable energy concepts has emerged from his research on Group-III Nitrides for solid-state lighting beginning in 1995, where he has paved the way for more efficient blue, green and violet GaN-based LEDs by using non-polar epitaxial layers and heterostructures.CS Europe conference takes place on the 22nd March 2011 in the heart of Europe and will discuss “What next for the Compound Semiconductor Industry?”From backlighting TVs to empowering mobile devices and harnessing the sun’s energy, compound semiconductor chips are playing an ever-increasing role in modern life. This is set to continue, but what will be the biggest breakthroughs over the next five years? And what’s needed to tap into these new markets?A selection of companies already confirmed to speak include JDS Uniphase Corporation, Modulight, OMMIC, OSRAM Opto Semiconductors, TriQuint Semiconductor, United Monolithic Semiconductors, TranSiC, RFMD, Oclaro and Dow Corning.If you want to learn from the insight of these insiders, be sure to book your place at CS Europe now and take advantage of Early Booking rates.Organised by Compound Semiconductor magazine and supported by Solar magazine and EuroAsia Semiconductor magazine, CS Europe will be the major European event for professionals involved in the Compound Semiconductor industry.Delegate booking
