12th International Conference on Optical Probes of Organic and Hybrid Semiconductors

The 12th International Conference on Optical Probes of Organic and Hybrid Semiconductors (OP2017) will be held in Québec City, Canada, 19th – 23rd June 2017. The Optical Probes Conference is the premier series of meetings in the field of photophysics of organic semiconductors, and its scope now extends to cover hybrid semiconductor such as perovskites amongst others. The scope of the current conference is a variety of excited state phenomena in technologically important materials and biosystems, including size-dependent and time-dependent electronic interactions, excited state dynamics, strong light-matter interactions, quantum confinement, photocarrier transport, and novel spectroscopic techniques.

Topics include:

*   Organic and polymeric materials (photophysics, chemistry, and dynamics)
*   Energy transport and exciton annihilation processes
*   Organic/polymeric electronic devices (OLEDS, OPV, etc.)
*   Photophysics and applications of hybrid organometal perovskite materials
*   Thermally activated delayed fluorescence in OLEDs
*   Organo-metallic complexes (photophysics and applications)
*   Semiconductor nanocrystals and metal nanoparticles (hybrid devices and novel physical phenomena)
*   Organic and inorganic nanostructured photovoltaic phenomena (physics, chemistry, and devices)
*   Optical properties of carbon allotropes
*   Photophysics of 2D atomic-layered materials
*   Molecular and supramolecular ordered assembly at nanoscales
*   Novel optical probes for condensed-matter materials research
*   Singlet Fission
*   Spin dynamics in organic systems
*   Photophysics of Bio organic materials and luminescent optical probes

Sustainable Energy & Fuels, Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics, and Journal of Materials Chemistry A are delighted to support the conference in providing poster prizes.
