The aim of the Symposium was to discuss the most recent results in all fields of Group IV heterostructures and devices from fundamental physics to industrial applications. Regular and invited contributions were then welcomed which addressed the different aspects of growth, the effects of strain relaxation, particularly in SiGeC alloys, the basic optical and electrical properties of heterostructures and low-dimensional structures, the microelectronic and optoelectronics, such as rare-earth doping techniques, was also selected. Except for minor changes, the order of papers presented in this special issue of Thin Solid Films closely follows the order of topics listed above as well as the order of sessions at the Symposium.
