Scope & Topics



The II-VI compounds provide a variety of unique optical, electrical and magnetic properties. The Conference will then cover all the aspects of basic and applied research, laying special emphasis on unique physical and material properties of II-VI compounds, related materials and nanostructures. A particular attention will be given to new trends and pioneering directions, as well as to new materials and devices.

The conference will give also the opportunity to review the most important achievements in practical applications of II-VI compounds in mid-infrared, visible and UV range detectors, optoelectronic devices…

It is an international forum aimed to review and stimulate the progress in basic and applied research on II-VI semiconductors and related materials, to facilitate the exchange of new ideas and to establish new scientific contacts.
