Oxide thin film materials and applications thereof have become an important field of research within materials science. Major breakthroughs in the synthesis of such (epitaxial) thin films, as well as the understanding of the structure-property relation of these materials have been realized in the last decade. This has led to many exciting new concepts, which are nowadays used in many technological applications. The series of Oxide Electronics Workshops have become an important forum to discuss recent advances and emerging trends in this developing field.

The 19th Workshop on Oxide Electronics (WOE19) will be held at the Palace ‘t Loo, Apeldoorn, the Netherlands, and will take place from September 30th-October 3rd, 2012. The aim of the workshop is to provide an interdisciplinary forum for researchers, theorists as well as experimentalist on the design, fabrication, theory, analysis and applications of functional oxide (epitaxial) materials. The aim of the workshop is to stimulate the participants to present the most recent results and to exchange ideas on the advancement in the research as well as applications.

We would like to encourage you to take part in the workshop and submit an abstract. Please visit this website to stay informed.

On behalf of the organizing committees,

Guus Rijnders,
Chairman of the 19th Workshop on Oxide Electronics
