PDI Topical Workshop on Cathodoluminescence of Semiconductor Nanostructures

Cathodoluminescence spectroscopy and imaging in scanning and transmission electron microscopes is a well adapted technique to investigate the optical emission properties of semiconductor nanostructures with an adequate spatial resolution. In recent years, the focus of this field has shifted from planar quantum well structures to three-dimensional nanostructures. In this context, the correlation of cathodoluminescence results with a variety of other electron microscopy techniques, among them energy-dispersive x-ray spectroscopy as well as electron backscatter diffraction, has resulted in new insights in the chemical or microstructural characteristics of these nanostructures. The purpose of the workshop is to bring together the active researchers in this very specific field within a framework that stimulates in-depth discussions.

Date: Monday, April 16th, to Tuesday, April 17th, 2018

Start of the workshop: Monday at 13:00;

End of the workshop: Tuesday at 16:30.

Laboratory tours at the Paul-Drude-Institut will be arranged for Monday morning.

Venue: Magnus-Haus, Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft e. V.,

Am Kupfergraben 7, 10117 Berlin, Germany


Scope: Cathodoluminescence spectroscopy and imaging of semiconductor nanostructures, in particular with respect to correlations with other electron microscopy techniques.
