The ICTMC-19 is the 19th conference in the series beginning with ICTSC-1 in Bath (1973), and following ICTMC-17 in Baku (2010) and ICTMC-18 in Salzburg (2012). The conference is covering physics, chemistry, materials science, device engineering, and also growth and theory of various ternary and multinary compounds: chalcopyrite-type (I-III-VI2, II-IV-V2), kesterite-type (I2-II-IV-VI4), sphalerite-type and wurtzite-type (III-V, II-VI, etc.), perovskite-type, skutterudite-type, complex-oxides, complex-nitrides, and so on. We would like to exchange information and experience between relevant material fields in the interdisciplinary forum.
- Growth and preparation techniques; bulk materials, thin films, nanostructured materials, nanoscale structures
- Characterization techniques, including large scale facilities
- Computational material design and modeling
- Photovoltaic materials and applications (CIGSSe, CZTS, CTS, etc)
- New high-efficiency solar-cell design based on multi-junction, nano-dots, mid-gap-state, and others
- Light emitting materials and devices
- Spintronic, thermoelectric, multiferroic and superconductive materials and applications
Niigata City is the main island's first ordinance-designated city on the west coast of Japan. Niigata City's transportation infrastructure is equipped with an international airport and harbor, bullet train, and a network of highways. It takes 2 hours from Tokyo Station by bullet train or an hour from Narita Airport by airplane. Niigata City also has a rich natural environment with many bodies of water, including two large rivers, lagoons and wetlands. The fertile fields of the vast Echigo Plain produce a multitude of rice-based products and agricultural produce. You can enjoy good food and sake in the urban port city of Niigata.
