Graphene and Semiconductors
(Theme: The Rising Era of Graphene)
Graphene, the two-dimensional crystal of carbon, has many extraordinary properties and characteristics which are either unique or surpass those of other materials. The fundamental properties of graphene are making it an attractive material for a wide variety of applications. And a potentially disruptive technology, is all the properties that are combined into one material like strong, flexible, transparent, and an excellent conductor of both heat and electricity - make it ideal for a wide range of real-world applications in areas such as electronics, biomedicine, energy and composites, The uptake of graphene will be driven by confidence in its performance and progress in its production with properties appropriate for specific application.
A semiconductor is a substance, usually a solid chemical element or compound, that can conduct electricity under some conditions but not others, making it a good medium for the control of electrical current. Its conductance varies depending on the current or voltage. The specific properties of a semiconductor depend on the impurities, or dopants, added to it Elemental semiconductors include antimony, arsenic, boron, carbon, germanium, selenium, silicon, sulfur, and tellurium. Silicon is the best-known of these, forming the basis of most integrated circuits (ICs). A semiconductor device can perform the function of a vacuum tube having hundreds of times its volume.
Operating Committee invites all the participants across the globe to attend the International Conference and Exhibition on Graphene and Semiconductors on July 17-18, 2017, Chicago, USA. Graphene-2017 covers a broad range of topics to discuss on this international platform by conducting keynote lectures, plenary speeches, workshops and poster presentations. Graphene -2017 is designed to explore the implications of Graphene and Semiconductors.
Importance & Scope:
Graphene is the thinnest strongest material in nature. This element is important because it may function as conductors, semiconductors, as well as insulators .Fullerene, graphene, and graphite are a few of the most important allotropes of carbon that exist in nano scale dimensions, and all three have unique physical, material, and chemical properties. Electricity flows very quickly through the simple honeycomb sheet. Most conductors we encounter are metals, yet graphene is based on carbon, a nonmetal.
Semiconductor devices can be mainly used to display a range of useful properties such as passing current more easily in one direction than the other, showing variable resistance, and sensitivity to light or heat. The electrons in semiconductors can have energies only within certain bands between the energy of the ground state, corresponding to electrons tightly bound to the atomic nuclei of the material, and the free electron energy, which is the energy required for an electron to escape entirely from the material. Graphene-2017 covers the area of Graphene Synthesis,Chemistry and biology studies of graphene,Graphene modification and functionalization,large scale Graphene production and characterization,Applications of Graphene in energy,Applications of Graphene in Biomedical,Semiconductors, Semiconductor Materials and Nanostructures,Organic/Inorganic Hybrid Semiconductors and Perovskites, Carbon Nanotubes and graphene,Quantum optics and Nano photonics in Semiconductor , Enterperneurs investment meet.
Chicago is among the largest cities in the U.S. Famed for its bold architecture, the population of the city is 2,695,598 and rank 3rd largest city in US. Chicago had the third largest gross metropolitan product in the United States at US$571billion. With over 2.7 million residents, it is the most populous city in the state of Illinois and the Midwest.
The city has many nicknames, which reflect the impressions and opinions about historical and contemporary Chicago. The best-known include the “Windy City” and “Second City”. Chicago has professional sports teams in each of the major professional leagues. The city’s waterfront location and nightlife has attracted residents and tourists alike. Over a third of the city population is concentrated in the lakefront neighborhoods of Rogers Park in the north to South Shore in the south.
The nature lovers are not to be disappointed for this place has something in store for everybody. Animal lovers will love the Lincoln Park Zoo, the Brookfield Zoo, the Garfield Park Conservatory and the Lincoln Park Conservatory should satiate the eyes of those looking for some quiet enjoyment.
Culturally very sound, this city offers you the best of African American, Asian and Latino cultures. Since it was the home of the Great Migration of the early 20th century, you will get to experience the cultural revival of the Harlem Renaissance. This city has a century old history of holding the most jazz musical shows, which you can still get to hear the city’s many night clubs. Not just music, this place also has a lot to say about the culture of African Americans. The DuSable Museum has more than 15000 artifacts and the Bronzeville Visitor Information Center and the Gallery Guichard gives the pleasure of viewing many art galleries of both nationally and internationally renowned artists.
As a multicultural city that thrives on the harmony and diversity of its neighborhoods, Chicago today embodies the values of America’s heartland-integrity, hard work and community and reflects the ideals in the social fabric of its 77 distinct neighborhoods.

Glance at Market of Graphene and Semiconductor
The graphene market today is dominated by research sales although the robust sales pipelines being built now suggests that the market composition will dramatically change in the decade to come. The largest sectors will be composites, energy storage and functional/conductive coatings, although each one will be split across several sub-sectors. Graphene platelets will dominate the sales particularly as their selling prices plunge, while graphene sheets will remain a small niche that will grow only from 2019/2020 onwards.
In April 2013, the Graphene Company received $300,000 from the Institute for Commercialization of Public Research. Forbes listed Broadcom, a semiconductor company as one of The Happiest Companies to Work For in 2015. 65+ Universities and Institutes offering Materials Science course at UG, PG and PhD levels in USA. As per BCC report the global market for nanotechnology was valued at nearly $20.1 billion in 2011 and should reach $20.7 billion in 2012. Total sales are expected to reach $48.9 billion in 2017 after increasing at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 18.7 .
