IWCGT-6 Participants


The IWCGT-6 was a great success with more than 120 participants from academia and industry, an excellent program, and superb hospitality. Thank you for attending!


This workshop − the sixth of a series initiated by Hans Scheel in 1998 − is devoted to crystal growth technology: industrial production, machining, and equipment. The focus lies on the preparation of bulk and substrate crystals.

The workshop is organized by the Leibniz Institute for Crystal Growth (IKZ) Berlin, Germany, under the auspices of the International Organization for Crystal Growth (IOCG).
The workshop is intended to link science and practice, i.e., R&D and the actual production. The workshop will start with a stimulating panel discussion on how to advance new growth technologies to industrial application.
Its further program consists of invited talks (duration 40 min. each) from international specialists with additional time for discussion and debate.
While the oral presentations will be on invitation only, all participants may present their own results in two evening poster sessions. Meet the experts at IWCGT-6!
