This workshop was organised by IUMA-ULPGC in order to help discuss advances and results obtained in AGATE project, together with other projects and research conducted in wide band compound semiconductors worldwide. It is an excellent forum for this discussion. WOCSDICE -now in its 41st edition- is one of the oldest workshops in this area. It features eight keynote speakers and 52 accepted papers from 19 countries including most European countries and US, Japan, or Russia. Full information on:

Institute of High Pressure Physics Polish Academy of Sciences will participate in the 3rd Intensive Discussion on Growth of Nitride Semiconductors (IDGN-3). This event is organized at Tohoku University (Sendai, Japan) and is a unique workshop with invited participants limited to 50 scientists from Japan and abroad. AGATE results will be included in an invited lecture entitled HVPE as a method for crystallizing GaN with low background impurity concentration with controllable doping - highly conductive n-type and semi-insulating material. The lecture will be presented by Małgorzata Iwińska.

Before the conference (August 1-7) the 16th International Summer School on Crystal Growth (ISSCG-16) was organized in Lake Biwa, Shiga, Japan. The above mentioned results were presented during a poster session at the ISSCG-16. Malgorzata Iwinska received an Excellent Poster Award from the IUCr (International Union of Crystallography) as well as a Young Researchers Award. Congratulations!

AGATE project results in Compound Semiconductor

Results of project AGATE were published in Compound Semiconductor Magazine. An article by IHPPS, titled Slashing the cost of GaN substrates can be found in the July issue. An invitation to prepare this article was a consequence of presenting the results at SPIE Photonics West 2016.
