8th International Workshop on Crystal Growth Technology (IWCGT-8)

The workshop - the eighth of its series initiated by Hans Scheel in 1998 - is devoted to Crystal Growth Technology, which also covers industrial scale technologies and equipment. The focus lies on the preparation of bulk and substrate crystals. The IWCGT-8, originally scheduled for June 2020, had to be postponed to 2022 due to the worldwide COVID pandemic.

The workshop aimed to provide links between R & D and actual production, besides bridging science and practice. International experts will present topical lectures with additional time allotted for discussions and debate. Attendees present their research at the evening poster sessions.
Topics of the workshop include for example:

  • Growth technology for micro-/nano-/opto-electronics and photovoltaics (Si, Ge, III-Vs etc.)
  • Substrate crystals for wide bandgap semiconductors (sapphire, SiC, GaN, AlN, Oxide electronics etc.)
  • Growth of piezoelectrics, lasers, luminescent materials etc. (oxides, dielectric crystals etc.)
  • Crystals for detectors and large-scale facilities (HPGe, CdTe, KDP etc.)
  • Novel tools and technologies for crystal growth (modeling, ML/AI, industry 4.0 etc.)
  • New approaches in crystal growth (specialized growth techniques, equipments, source and hot zone materials)
  • Concepts and experience in crystal growth technologies going commercial

We are very pleased to invite you to this important workshop and experts gathering! Please save the date and share this information with interested colleagues.
