EMN Epitaxy 2019

Welcome to EMN Epitaxy 2019 Amsterdam !



About Epitaxy 2019


To continue its success of last events at Budapest, Hungary (2016), Barcelona, Spain (2017) and Vienna, Austria (2018), the EMN Meeting on Epitaxy 2019 will be held from June 17 to 21, 2019 at Holiday Inn Amsterdam – Arena Towers in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. 

The paramount EMN Epitaxy 2019 will bring an opportunity for leading academic scientists, researchers and decision makers in the field of Epitaxy to get their latest discoveries acknowledged on the global arena, which will include topics of “MBE Molecular Beam Epitaxy“, “MOCVD Metal-organic Chemical Vapor Deposition“, “Atomic Layer Deposition“, “Epitaxial Growth“, “2D Semiconducting Materials“, “Epitaxy Nanomaterials” and other epitaxy related topics.

It will continue for four days will take you to the voyage of knowledge providing you an opportunity to both collaborations and learn about the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted in this broad field of epitaxy technology from all over the world, with emphasis on both the basic science as well as its applications in industry and academia. 

The meeting will be a few days of intense collaboration with great social occasions. It will be not only be a time to enjoy the company of fellow researchers in the field, but also a time to have fun with friends and family!
