Content : The 17th International Conference on High Pressure in Semiconductor Physics (HPSP-17) & The Workshop on High pressure Study on Superconducting (WHS).
The Seventeenth International Conference on High Pressure in Semiconductor Physics (HPSP-17) and Workshop on High-pressure Study on Superconducting (WHS) will be a satellite conference of the International Conference on the Physics of Semiconductors (ICPS 2016) to be held in Beijing (China) during the last week. The Workshop on High Pressure Study on Superconducting (WHS) joins HPSP-17 for the first time. HPSP-17 &WHS will take place during summer in Tokyo, one of the most attractive city in the world.
The aim of HPSP-17 and WHS are to allow young and experienced researchers from different fields to meet together during a single-session conference to present and discuss their latest results in the field of application of high pressure and other forms of high stress in the study of semiconductors and superconductors. The HPSP-17 conference will review, in particular, the latest advances and developments in the study of nanostructured semiconductor materials and devices using high pressure techniques. Presentations on both traditional bulk and low-dimensional systems are also welcomed. The WHS conference will review the latest experimental results and theoretical advances in superconductivity at high pressure, pressure-induced superconductivity, design of high pressure apparatus and other related subjects also welcome.
We will have an opportunity to have a bird-eye crossing two fields, bridging over towering two fields, and thus a new stimulus in both fields. One example would be the late Prof. Bardeen, Nobel prize laureate in both fields. The another example is the fact that semiconductor becomes superconducting under pressure.
