UK Semiconductor Nanowires Meeting 2019

We are happy to announce the 5th annual UK Semiconductor Nanowires Meeting, which is being held on Tuesday 21st May 2019 at Corpus Christi College, Oxford.

Scope: This one-day meeting brings together UK-based groups who are researching III-V and/or III-N nanowires, and is designed to provide an overview of the latest nanowires research from across the UK. The objective of this meeting is to facilitate better collaboration, help generate new ideas and to enable a coordinated approach to complete with international programmes. The scientific program will consist of invited talks by a selection of group leaders and a poster session will run throughout the day. Postdoctoral fellows and graduate students are strongly encouraged to present posters.
