FAME – Second International Workshop on Fundamentals and Advances of MOVPE processes

After the success of the first edition, the second edition of FAME (2024) – Second International Workshop on Fundamentals and Advances of MOVPE processes will be held at Eindhoven University of Technology (Netherlands) on July the 8-9th 2024.
As before, this workshop will focus on epitaxy and related fundamental processes in MOVPE (and other close enough epitaxial techniques). Motivation being to stimulate debate in the community about the physical processes’ unknowns which need deeper understanding to advance our research field(s).
In this sense the workshop aims to be a hardcore epitaxial forum, merging growth, theory and characterization, and focusing more on “why something is possible” than on the devices that are made possible, which remain, unquestionably, a strong motivating avenue.

The workshop will maintain the original structure, and will be structured with approximately 20 invited talks delivered by senior researchers and experts, including young rising researchers, over two days. The aim is to have an informal but vibrant discussion forum, capable of stimulating ideas and dialogue between experts in the field, concentrating on the specifics of the “science” and less on the application overview aspects.  For full details see Programme FAME II.

There are no fees associated to this event. The organizing committee will arrange and cover lunches, coffee breaks and social events (workshop dinner), but will not be in the position to cover accommodation and travel.
The workshop will take place in the meeting room of: https://www.tue.nl/en/our-university/tue-campus/buildings/ceres

IPIC celebrates International Day of Light 2019

Tyndall National Institute

The International Day of Light is a global initiative that provides an annual focal point for the continued appreciation of light and the role it plays in science, culture and art, education, and sustainable development, and in fields as diverse as medicine, communications, and energy. The broad theme of light will allow many different sectors of society worldwide to participate in activities that demonstrates how science, technology, art and culture can help achieve the goals of UNESCO – education, equality, and peace.

On 16th May 2019, IPIC marked this global initiative with a full day of activities onsite at Tyndall National Institute.  The day began with a visit to the Institute by two local secondary schools, Coláiste Daibhéid and Coláiste and Phiarsaigh.  During their visit, the students met with researchers from across IPIC’s four research themes and learned about some of the projects that the groups are working on.
