The session on Novel Materials and Structures for the ICCG will include material topic groups not included in other Sessions. We are seeking papers in the following areas of novel materials and structures:
  • Optical and Acoustic Metamaterials. Photonic and Phononic Crystals.
  • Bulk crystal growth of Novel Compounds such as: Alloys of III-V + II-VI semiconductors,II-VI + IV-VI semiconductors , II A-VI B compounds.
  • Low Phonon energy crystals for Solid-State Lasers in MWIR/LWIR range.
  • Novel materials for Optical/Laser Cooling.
  • Novel Compliant Substrate Structures/concepts for reduction of dislocation density in epitaxial layers of II-VI and III-V semiconductors.
  • Novel 2D materials (graphene, silicene, etc.).
