Compound Semiconductors for Display Applications

Wednesday, 20 November, 2019 - 10:00 to 16:00

One-day technical meeting and AGM COMPOUND SEMICONDUCTORS FOR DISPLAY APPLICATIONS CSA Catapult Innovation Centre, Celtic Way, Imperial Park, Newport, NP10 8BE Wednesday 20th November 2019, 10:00 to 16:00 The Society for Information Display, a global organisation representing scientists, engineers, corporate researchers, and business people from the display industry is pleased to organise this one day technical meeting on compound semiconductors for display applications.

The meeting is hosted by the Compound Semiconductor Applications Catapult which is headquartered in South Wales. CSA Catapult is a Not for Profit organisation focused on accelerating the adoption of compound semiconductors and on bringing applications to life in three technology areas: Power Electronics, RF & Microwave and Photonics. The next wave of emerging applications will have an enormous impact on our lives. These developments will be underpinned by compound semiconductor (CS) technologies.

The Compound Semiconductor Applications Catapult exists to help the UK economy grow and works across the UK within a range of industry sectors from automotive to medical, and from digital communications to aerospace.

The meeting will include talks from leading companies and universities on materials and devices including advanced GaN on silicon technologies, MicroLED and quantum dots for potential applications including augmented reality, head-up display and next generation large area displays. Registration for this meeting is now open at this link, and payment processed here.
