The Brazilian Workshop on Semiconductor Physics (BWSP) is a biennial workshop initiated in 1983 with the goal of gathering the Brazilian semiconductor physics community to a series of lectures on the most important and timely topics in the area. It is currently the premier national meeting for reporting all aspects of semiconductor physics including electronic, structural, optical, magnetic and transport properties.
In this edition, the BWSP was organized by professors from the Institute of Physics of the University of São Paulo (IFUSP). The workshop reflected the state of the art in the semiconductor physics and served as a forum where scholars, researchers, and specialists interacted to discuss future research directions and technological advancements.
The workshop covered a broad range of topics such as low dimensional systems, topological insulators, graphene, two-dimensional systems beyond graphene, wide- and narrow-gap semiconductors, spin manipulation, organic and biological related semiconductors, among other traditional topics in semiconductor physics. The workshop program included 150 presentations with 19 invited speakers, 27 contributed oral talks and 104 posters. Moreover, tutorials on growth, spin-orbit coupling and two-dimensional materials were also included.
