Compound semiconductors play an important role in different fields
of applications. The definition of compound semiconductors covers a
wide range of materials for electronic, optical and electro-optical
devices and detectors. Their industrial impact is still very strong.
The session is dedicated to a variety of materials with a smaller
bandgap for bulk crystals and films. It is covering the technology
aspects of crystal growth, structural and electronic defects as well as
the characterization and novel applications.
