SCIENTIFIC TOPICS

The scope of the Conference is the presentation of the latest investigations on point and extended defects in bulk materials, thin films and nano-structures. Technological applications will be presented alongside fundamental measurements and theories. The ICDIM 2016 brings together scientists from both academic institutions and industry. The meeting aims at a free exchange of new results and ideas for advancing the development of the field of defect-related phenomena in wide band-gap materials. The main scientific areas include:
▪ Fundamental physical phenomena
▪ Point and extended defects in wide band-gap systems: oxides, fluorides, nitrides, alkali- and silver-halides, perovskites, minerals, ceramics, nano-structures, organic molecular crystals, glasses, high-k and low-k materials, photonic crystals
▪ Defects at surfaces and interfaces
▪ Thin films and low-dimensional systems
▪ Colloids, nano-crystals, and aggregates
▪ Defects and material preparation technology
▪ Defects modeling and computational methods
▪ Radiation effects, radiation induced defects, colour centers
▪ Luminescence of excitons, impurities, and defects
▪ Electronic excitations, excited state dynamics, radiative and non-radiative relaxations
▪ Scintillation, energy transfer and storage, carrier trapping phenomena
▪ Defect related non-linear optical phenomena
▪ Laser active centers
▪ Phonons and defects, electron-phonon interactions
▪ Defect diffusion, ionic relaxations, ionic transport
▪ Technological applications: Radiologicand radiometric imaging and detection (scintillators and dosimeters)- Optical devices and photonics, photorefractive electro-optics, optical fibres, lasers- Materials for opto-electronics, photonics and micro-electronics- Solid electrolytes, fuel cells, electrochemical sensors, fast ionic conductors - Nuclear fuel - other applications
