Detection and generation of THz radiation by plasma waves in nanometric two-dimensional systems
Université Montpellier II
GDR-I Workshop
29 March-1 April, 2011
Hotel Montana, Tignes, France

Dear Colleagues,

   We are very glad and honored that you agree to come and contribute to the next workshop of the GDRI “Semiconductors Sources and Detectors of THz radiation”, which will be held in the ski resort Tignes, on 29/03-01/04 2011. Thanks to the participation of many THz world leaders, we are sure the scientific talks and discussions will be valuable for everybody.

   The object of the workshop is to present the latest developments in the field of Terahertz related Science and Technology and to search for possible bilateral collaborative projects.
