The workshop – held every three years only – is an outstanding opportunity to discuss and learn about status, technologies, and prospects of bulk crystal growth technology. Renowned experts from the field will provide lectures to an attendance of about 100 senior scientists, leaders and professionals from both industry and academia. Topics include growth of single crystals for electronics and photovoltaics, substrate crystals for wide bandgap semiconductors, growth technology of piezoelectric, laser and luminescent crystals also for large-scale facilities, and novel tools, technologies and approaches for industrial or appplication-related crystal growth.
