Like last year we joined and contributed to the yearly E-MRS spring conference and exhibition, which this year moved to Strasbourg after taking place in Lille, France, last years. We contributed to symposium T: Synthesis, processing and characterization of nanoscale multi functional oxide films with a talk entitled “Recent advances in large area Pulsed Laser Deposition; epitaxial growth of complex oxides on silicon”, in which we outlined the current status focusing on results we obtained in growth on silicon wafers.
