11/1/11 – DIAMOND 2011 Conference Lines up Leading Researchers
11 January 2011
High technology will be heart of Europe’s diamond materials conference.It will focus on the fields of diamond, diamond-likecompounds, carbon nanotubes, graphene, and nitridesaccording toElsevier, organisers of Diamond 2011. The 22nd European Conference will take place between 4-8 September 2011 in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, Germany.
The conference programme will discuss the significant improvements in material growth processes, material purity and doping of these materials over the past few years. The improvements have lead to the discovery of new phenomena in these materials as well as to novel device applications with increasingly impressive performance levels.
The conference has now made its call for abstracts for oral and paper presentations in the topics of diamond, diamond-like carbon, carbon nanotubes, graphene, and III-nitrides: growth properties and applications. Abstract submissions should be made through the company’s online abstract submission system at http://www.diamond-conference.elsevier.com. The deadline for abstract submission is March 3, 2011.
"Elsevier is very excited to be organizing DIAMOND 2011 in collaboration with the scientific community," said Allyn Molina, Elsevier Publisher. "Building on the success of last year’s conference, the programme will continue to bring a broad spectrum of speakers and topics that present the current state of diamond science."
"In 2011 we expect significant progress with respect to single crystalline diamond wafer production as well as quantum effects in diamond applied for quantum computing, cryptography and magnetic field sensing," commented Christoph Nebel, conference Chair and Professor at Fraunhofer Institut fur Angewandt Festkorperphysik (IAF), Germany. "These topics are at the leading edge of semiconductor research, utilizing the unique properties of diamond for novel semiconductor applications of the near future and will be addressed at DIAMOND 2011."
