The European Workshop on
Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) traditionally covers the whole spectrum of
activities related to the MBE growth technique, as well as its
applications. Growth issues on a wide variety of semiconductors,
metals, superconductors, magnetic and organic films will be included,
as well as the characterization techniques applied to them. Device
applications represent a key aspect of this Workshop, so that,
participants from Industries represent a substantial added value.
The European MBE Workshop,
with a biannual periodicity and lasting three days, includes plenary
oral presentations, as well as regular oral and poster contributions,
with an approximate number of attendees around 150. This Workshop, that
started 25 years ago in Germany (1st European
Workshop on MBE, Stuttgart, Apr. 1981), stands as one of the most
renown and prestigious scientific meetings on MBE. The previous
Workshop edition in Switzerland (Grindelwald, March 2005), was very
succesful, both, from a participation viewpoint, and for the high
quality standards reached.
very relevant aspect of this Workshop is to promote the participation
of PhD students and young researchers, so that, special efforts are
committed to maintain a low fees rate for them.
The coming edition of this
Workshop will take place in Sierra Nevada, a well known skiing resort
in Granada, Spain, which is also around 50 miles away from the
mediterranean coast. This Workshop will be organized by the
Polytechnical University of Madrid. We do hope that all researchers
related to MBE will have the chance to attend this Workshop and to
enjoy both science and the natural environment of this unique resort.
