The goal of this program is to support a conference and symposia title The U.S. Workshop on the Physics and Chemistry of II-VI Materials that will be of interest to the Army. As stated in the proposal, we will organize a Workshop in October 2016 as a part of the annual workshop that will bring together the industrial, governmental, and academic communities that work with II-VI materials. These II-VI materials are critical in a wide range of detector technologies operating in the infrared, ultraviolet, x-ray, and gamma-ray regions of the spectrum, as well as broad-band devices such as solar cells. They include HgCdTe, ZnSe, ZnO, ZnS, and CdTe, as well as other II-VI semiconductors and alloys. Spectrometers, imagers, and other sophisticated systems exploiting various properties of these materials are finding applications in many fields, including national security, homeland security, medicine, industrial process monitoring, basic science, astronomy, energy production, and more. The Workshop aims at advancing the understanding of the basic physics and chemistry of these materials, and thereby contributesto the continual improvement of these system capabilities.
