To protect the health of all participants and prevent the spread of the disease we will convene all sessions and symposia online. We are offering substantially reduced participation fees.

 

The recent years have seen a revolution in the science and practice of crystal growth. Novel mechanisms of nucleation and growth have decoded mysteries that have puzzled the community for ages. Elaborate processes and advanced techniques have birthed materials with unprecedented properties and exciting applications. Rationales developed within the crystal growth realm have illuminated longstanding conundrums in geology, biology, and medicine. 

 

These jointly-held conferences are the premier forums to discuss the huge modern advances in all aspects of crystal growth, both in the bulk and as epitaxial films. We will continue the tradition of numerous ACCGE and OMVPE meetings and bring together the topmost experts in the field from industry, academia, and government laboratories. Joining the two conferences affords an exceptional opportunity to present and discuss original results and provides a venue for newcomers to embrace the hot, new advances in science and technology. Our format is designed to maximize interaction among leading specialists and the wider crystal growth community, with oral and poster sessions as well as plenary and invited speakers to provide a broad picture of the up-to-date developments in the field.

SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM

 

This virtual conference will feature three days of oral and poster presentations covering topics in the following areas:

 

Fundamentals of Crystal Growth

Modeling of Crystal Growth Processes

Bulk Crystal Growth  

Biological and Biomimetic Materials

Thin film growth, epitaxy, and superlattices

Lattice-mismatched epitaxy and alternative epitaxial substrates

2D materials, surfaces and interfaces

Nanocrystals, quantum dots, and nanowires

Advanced Crystal Growth Technology and Equipment

Detector Materials: Scintillators and Semiconductors

Nonlinear Optical and Laser Host Materials 

Advanced OMVPE: novel materials and devices

Advanced OMVPE techniques: equipment, epitaxy, and characterization

In situ and ex situ characterization techniques

III-V Epitaxial Growth for Devices

III-V Wide Bandgap Nitride Semiconductors and Devices

III-Vs on Silicon

Narrow Bandgap Semiconductors and Devices

Silicon Carbide and Gallium Oxide Materials and Devices

Materials for photovoltaics and other energy technologies

 

Six symposia will focus on hot issues of the science and practice of crystal growth:

 

Symposium on Twisted Crystals

Symposium on Metal Nanoparticle Nucleation and Growth

Symposium on Nucleation in Microfluidics

Third Symposium on Complex Oxides

Third Symposium on Ferroelectric Crystals and Textured Ceramics

Fifth Symposium on 2D and Low Dimensional Materials

PROCEEDINGS

Authors who have a paper accepted for oral or poster presentations at the 22nd American Conference on Crystal Growth and Epitaxy (ACCGE-22) held jointly with the 20th U.S. Biennial Workshop on Organometallic Vapor Phase Epitaxy (OMVPE-20) on August 2 to August 4, 2021 are invited to submit papers for consideration for publication in the JCG.  Papers will be published in the Journal of Crystal Growth. Submission deadline: September 30, 2021

 

The papers submitted will undergo a peer review process similar to regular publications. Only work presented at the conference and that has not been published, nor is in press, or submitted for publication elsewhere will be considered for inclusion in the JCG.  Formatting instructions and submission links TBA.
