International Conference On Electronic Properties Of Two-Dimensional Systems
The international conference series Electronic Properties of Two-Dimensional Systems (EP2DS), is a biannual event, where over hundred scientists meet for the presentation of new developments on the special field of two-dimensional electronic systems in semiconductors. Most transistors in integrated circuits have such a two-dimensional electron system inside, but also the Quantum Hall effect was discovered in such a structure.
The conference series started 1975 at the Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, USA. The last one, EP2DS-18 was held 2009 in Kobe, Japan, and the 19th took place in 2011 in Tallahassee, Florida.
Famous quotes containing the words properties, systems, conference and/or electronic:
“The reason why men enter into society, is the preservation of their property; and the end why they choose and authorize a legislative, is, that there may be laws made, and rules set, as guards and fences to the properties of all the members of the society: to limit the power, and moderate the dominion, of every part and member of the society.”
—John Locke (16321704)
“Not out of those, on whom systems of education have exhausted their culture, comes the helpful giant to destroy the old or to build the new, but out of unhandselled savage nature, out of terrible Druids and Berserkirs, come at last Alfred and Shakespeare.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“Reading maketh a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man.”
—Francis Bacon (15611626)
“Sometimes, because of its immediacy, television produces a kind of electronic parable. Berlin, for instance, on the day the Wall was opened. Rostropovich was playing his cello by the Wall that no longer cast a shadow, and a million East Berliners were thronging to the West to shop with an allowance given them by West German banks! At that moment the whole world saw how materialism had lost its awesome historic power and become a shopping list.”
—John Berger (b. 1926)
