Coronavirus COVID-19 Update: Conference postponed to 2021

We have decided that EXMATEC will not be held as originally scheduled in June 2020 due to the growing concerns around COVID-19, which has now been declared a pandemic, together with the increasing number of government restrictions.

New dates:

EXMATEC: 15 - 17 June 2021

The programme with conference sessions, reception, banquet and excursion will stay the same as initially planned for this year, however, everything will simply be shifted one day earlier of the week. That means, EXMATEC 2021 will run Tuesday through Thursday.

What Is EXMATEC 2020 All About?

The conference EXMATEC 2020 is building on its successful history of biennial meetings targeting novel developments, improvements and applications of state-of-the-art advanced methods in fabrication as well as evaluation of various compound III-V and III-N semiconductors. The goal is to understand structural, electrical and related material properties in order to enhance lifetime, reliability, yield, reproducibility and ultimately performance.


The topics to be addressed include, but are not necessarily limited to the following:


  • Advanced Characterization Techniques

  • Defects

  • Bulk & Epitaxial Growth

  • Low Dimensional Semiconductor Systems

  • III-Vs, III-Ns, II-VIs, SiC, SiGe

  • Nanostructures (Physics & Materials)

  • Interfaces & Heterostructures

  • Reliability Issues (Physics of Failure and Degradation Mechanisms)

  • Photovoltaics (Materials & Technology)

  • Optoelectronic Materials

  • RF and Power Electronic Materials

The EXMATEC has a rich and fruitful history starting in 1992. It was lately hosted all over Europe in Cadiz, Spain (2006), Lodz, Poland (2008), Darmstadt, Germany (2010), Porquerolles, France (2012), Delphi, Greece (2014), Aveiro, Portugal (2016) and Bucharest, Romania (2018).
