Symposium O, 'Compound Semiconductors for Generating, Emitting and Manipulating Energy', was held November 28-December 2 at the 2011 MRS Fall Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts. Energy is arguably the most important issue for the future and this symposium provided a forum to discuss the research and development for collecting, emitting and manipulating energy. A particular focus was made on recent advances in the scientific and technological exploration of compound semiconductors for applications as light emitters, solar cells and transistors. Additionally, the topics covered in this proceeding include a broad range reaching from fundamental material development to device demonstration and industrial implementation. Contributions were made on the fabrication of devices such as LEDs, lasers, high-power, high-speed electronics and III-V solar cells. This symposium proceeding provides insight into emerging trends in these exciting technologies.
