BRICS 1OCSMD will be organized for the first time in May 2024 and hosted by Laboratory of 2D Optoelectronics and Nanoelectronics (L2DON) leaded by Prof. Yury Illarionov (official Russian delegate of 5th BRICS Young Scientist Forum 2020 and past participant of BRICS STI Framework project) in Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech), Shenzhen, China. The conference will feature various areas related to smart materials and devices:

Electrical, optical and mechanical properties 2D materials (graphene, TMDs, black phosphorus, etc)
Emerging devices based on 2D materials, thin film semiconductors, etc
Advanced modeling of material properties, including prediction of new materials
Advanced TCAD modeling of semiconductor devices
Smart materials for health care and environmental applications
Materials and devices for quantum technologies, quantum algorithms and computing

We have finally confirmed speakers from 8 BRICS members: Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, UAE and Iran, as well as several participants from Singapore, Austria and Germany.

Laboratory of 2D Optoelectronics and Nanoelectronics (L2DON) is led by Associate Professor Yury Illarionov and belongs to the Department of Materials Science and Engineering of the Southern University of Science and Technology, Shenzhen, China. Our research is centered around devices based on 2D materials, mainly field-effect transistors and photodetectors. While our laboratory is new, by Fall 2024 we are expected to have facilities for device nanofabrication and electrical characterization. At the moment we are mostly focused on modeling of the reliability of field-effect transistors with 2D channels using advanced TCAD tools and compact models.

The Department of Theoretical Physics named after E. V. Shpol'sky of the Moscow Pedagogical State University (MPGU, Moscow, Russia) was founded in 1939. The main direction of the department's educational activities is the training of scientific and pedagogical personnel in all main areas of life sciences based on physics. The department gained international fame in connection with the discovery in its laboratory of the Shpol'sky effect - the effect of the appearance of fine-structured quasi-line spectra in frozen solutions of complex organic compounds. This effect is at the foundation of the Nobel prize in chemistry 2014 for the development of super-resolution fluorescence microscopy.
