Abstract:

The Second International Workshop on Surfaces and Interfaces of Mesoscopic Devices SIMD97 was held among the luxurious surroundings of the Hyatt Regency Hotel, on the Hawaiian island of Maui, from 7-12 December 1997. Some seventy researchers from around the world gathered in this idyllic setting to report key advances in the physics of mesoscopic devices and their future technological applications. The atmosphere of the workshop was highly stimulating, with all contributions presented in oral format and sufficient time allocated for lively question and answer sessions. The scope of the workshop was also ambitious, although without being over-diluted. Major topics covered included fundamentals of electron transport in quantum dots and quantum dot arrays, organics on semiconductors, impurities in heterostructures, fabrication of nanostructures, single electron devices, quantum wells and nanodevices. As Guest Editor of this special issue of Semiconductor Science and Technology, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the workshop committee members for their hard work and to gratefully acknowledge the financial support for SIMD97 from the Arizona State University and the Office of Naval Research. Heres looking forward to doing it all again.
