The "Journées boites quantiques" is the french edition of the "Quantum dots" conference serie that takes place every two years. It was first organized in Marcoussis in 2003. The following editions were in Grenoble (2009), in Toulouse (2011), and in Paris (2013). The next edition will be held in Grenoble on june, 29th and 30th 2015

The french meeting on Semiconductor Quantum Dots will be held in Grenoble CNRS on June 29th and 30th, 2015. The aim of this meeting is to provide a forum for scientists from different research branches including physics, materials science and engineering to discuss fabrication techniques, optical and transport properties as well as applications of quantum dots. One of the main goals of the conference is to bring together different quantum dot communities involved in research on self-assembled dots, nano-crystals, nano-wires, graphene-like materials, nanotubes and gated structures, in order to stimulate progress by combining the expertise developed in each community.


The scope of this meeting covers elaboration, basic physics and applied research on quantum dots. The focus of the conference is the optical and electronic properties of these nanostructures. During the last years, this field of research has continued to evolve at a very fast pace. This national meeting will provide an up-to-date image of the progress achieved and will contribute to the future success of the field.


The meeting will focus on the following topics:

  • - Growth, ordering and structure of quantum dots
  • - Nanophotonics with quantum dots
  • - Nanoelectronics with quantum dots
  • - Spin dynamics, control and readout of a single spin
  • - Dephasing, coherent control and quantum information with quantum dots
