MRS Spring Meeting 2019 – Excitonic Materials & Quantum Dots for Energy Conversion

Symposium ES19 – Excitonic Materials and Quantum Dots for Energy Conversion

Multi-excitonic processes in conjugated organic molecules and quantum confined semiconductor nanocrystals potentially allow the energy in photons to be directed as desired. Design of the molecular framework or material nanostructure will allow a wide range of optical, electronic and mechanical properties to be engineered for energy conversion. This symposium will emphasize the diverse applications of excitonic materials, including colloidally synthesized quantum dots, pi-conjugated systems, and their hybrid constituents, in applications ranging from photovoltaics to bioimaging. There will also be sessions focusing on fundamental materials properties correlating structure to photophysical properties, nano- and mesoscale order and composition to optoelectronic properties of thin films. The symposium will highlight recent progress and identify new directions in emerging, interdisciplinary areas of nanoscience.

Nanoscale Advances is delighted to sponsor this session.

Topics will include:

  • Computational methods for excitonic materials
  • Exciton-based photon upconversion
  • Multiple exciton generation in QDs
  • Singlet fission in molecules or polymers
  • Exciton-charge dynamics in organic/QD hybrid systems
  • Optoelectronic devices (e.g. transistors, photodetectors) based on exciton or charge transport
  • Role of the interface in energy and charge transport
  • Hierarchical order at the nano- and mesoscale (e.g. organic or QD thin films)
  • Emerging applications incorporating colloidally-synthesized QDs, e.g. Biological: in-vivo and in-vitro; Photocatalysis: solar fuel production; Next-generation photovoltaics with the lead chalcogenides and perovskites

and more.

Description

Practical information: 

The deadline for registration is April 12th (with final answers given on April 30th)

Our workshop will host ~20 invited talks of 35 min (including Q&A). In addition to planned poster session, a few slots (~5) for short talks of ~25 min are available. If you would like to present your results, please mention your preferred format (contributed talk or poster) with your application.

 

This workshop will focus on the current challenges in computational simulations of nanoparticles, including their functionalization, from catalysis (nanozymes) to membrane interacting nanoparticles. In addition, the workshop will take advantage of several experimentalists working on nanoparticles interacting with materials and biological environment. Ultimately, we will discuss and debate on how computational methods can further evolve to build novel tools for a deeper understanding of nanostructures and nanomaterials.

Sessions will focus mainly on the methodological improvements for studying nanoparticles and their interaction with complex realistic environments, including protein membranes. We will discuss our models and approaches with experimentalists throughout the workshop’s sessions:

  1. Nanoparticles and membranes
  2. Functionalized Nanoparticles
  3. Experiments meet simulations for nanoscience
  4. Nanoparticles for health and technology
