Abstract Book of the 30th Workshop on Compound Semiconductor Devices and Integrated Circuits in Europe
Edited book, 2006
The organisers and hosts warmly welcome you to the 30th Workshop on Compound Semiconductor Devices and Integrated Circuits in Europe, WOCSDICE 2006, at the Gullmarsstrand Hotel & Conferences in Fiskebäckskil, Sweden, May 14-17, 2006. The symposium is organised by the Chalmers Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience (MC2) with the aim to create a forum where researchers can discuss latest results and trends in the field of compound semiconductor technology and related science. Established in 1973, WOCSDICE has a long-standing tradition. This workshop brings together both internationally recognised researchers and promising young scientists and engineers to disseminate state-of-the-art research findings in the areas of compound semiconductor materials, associated devices and integrated circuits. This year we have 56 papers (8 invited) divided into nine sessions and more than 78 delegates from 20 countries.
Fiskebäckskil is a small restful community situated by Gullmarsfjorden opposite to the village Lysekil. Gullmarsfjorden is Sweden's only true threshold fjord, 25 km deep and 1 to 3 km broad. In the 19th century the small fishing village was transformed into a shipping society. The special wood based architecture of this time is well preserved until today. During the 20th century Fiskebäckskil, surrounded by red granite and the salty sea became a prime choice for summer recreation and swimming. The conference hotel (Gullmarsstrand) building is reverentially renovated and modernised to fulfil the highest expectations for a successful workshop.
The workshop is sponsored by the Swedish Research Council (VR), the IEEE Sweden Section, the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF-HSEP), Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems (VINNOVA), OXFORD Plasma Technology and Agilent technologies. We would like to thank these organisations for their support. We would also like to thank everyone who helped to arrange WOCSDICE 2006: the international steering committee for advice; the local organising committee; Eva Hellberg and Peter Jönsson for all WEB support; Catharina Forssén, and Ingrid Collin for help with registrations and payments; the session chairs; and everyone who attends or contributes with a presentation.
On behalf of the local organisation committee, we would like to welcome all of you and wish you a pleasant and fruitful stay in Fiskebäckskil.
