Tutorial sessions will be held on Monday Oct. 17, 2016. The tutorial welcomes  all  interested  and  registered U.S. II-VI workshop participants. The workshop committee particularly encourages graduate students, postdocs, and junior researchers to attend the tutorial and explore the topics in detail and tap into the experience of and network with the well established researchers. More information about the tutorials such as registration, time, and location will  be  posted  on  the  II-VI  Workshop  Web  site and also distributed via e-mail in following weeks.

Speaker: Roger DeWames - NVESD 
5:00 PM - 6:15 PM in Chesapeake I & II

"Topics in Heterojunction Photodiodes, Physics with applications in Infrared Imaging"

Speaker: Herbert Schaake - EPIR Tehnologies
6:30 PM - 7:45 PM in Chesapeake I & II

"Modeling the Role of Point Defect Diffusion in Diode Formation, Impurity Activation,
and  Tellurium  Precipitation  in  HgCdTe"


This year’s Keynote Speaker will be Dr. Larry Schuette, Director of Research, Office of Naval Research, who will speak on “Naval S&T: The Innovation Engine”.

The presentation will define the participants, processes and goals of Naval Science and Technology.  The talk will give examples of the various levels of exploration from the most basic research performed by academia and the service labs to very applied field tests and experimentation that take advantage of unique features of navy platforms and naval environments.  The emphasis will be on the ways in which Naval S&T fosters innovation in support of the Navy and the nation.”

Best Student Paper Award

Every year the Workshop Committee selects one of the student presentations to receive the William E. Spicer - Thomas N. Casselman award for the best student paper ...Read more...
