HISTORY


The US Workshop on the Physics and Chemistry of II-VI materials was founded in the year 1981. The Workshop focuses on fundamental research on the major scientific problems in II-VI materials. Its primary goal has been to promote an understanding of the relationship among the physical and chemical properties, and leverage this understanding into manufacturing and performance improvements.

In the years since the first MCT Workshop was held, the technology of HgCdTe and other II-VI materials and related devices has significantly matured and broadened. The Workshop plays a vital role in this technological evolution. It provides the principal open forum for the exchange of information relative to theory and experiment, synthesis, and analysis. It brings together university, governmental, and industrial research in a highly interactive manner.

The Workshop was founded:

  • To encourage in-depth discussion and audience participation, the Workshop combines conventional oral and poster presentations with sufficient time allocated for questions and answers
  • To broaden exposure without sacrificing depth, invited speakers offer insight into areas relevant to II-VI materials
  • To ensure dissemination of results, submitted peer-reviewed full-length papers are published in the Journal of Electronic Materials

Every year a Poster Session is scheduled after the first day's meeting during evening in concurrence with the scheduled Wine and Cheese Reception/Tabletops. Poster sessions present the opportunity for a more interactive dialog between authors and the audience. This forum offers informal discussions among participants, and ample time for paper discussion and individual interactions allows increased cultivation of science. To foster these interactions, lunch is also provided every day of the Workshop.
