Optical Nanostructures and Advanced Materials for Photovoltaics (PV)

Optical Nanostructures and Advanced Materials for Photovoltaics (PV)

02 - 05 November 2015
Soochow University Dushu Lake Campus, Suzhou, China

Optical Nanostructures and Advanced Materials for Photovoltaics (PV) brings together experts in nanophotonics, materials science and photovoltaics to discuss the latest developments in nanophotonic enhancement and nanostructured materials for the next generation of solar cells. Nanostructured materials and photon management schemes offer unprecedented opportunities to control both the optical and electrical properties of next-generation solar cells. This meeting covers all aspects of novel materials and optical nanostructures for photovoltaic applications, from surface textures and diffraction gratings through to emerging topics such as plasmonics, nanowires, quantum dots, and perovskites, among many more.

Congress Special Events

Daily Lunches

Daily lunches are included with all technical registration. This is an excellent time to continue to network with your colleagues and continue discussions on the latest research. Location and times of the lunches will be on the onsite program.


Plenary and Keynote Sessions

The Light, Energy and the Environment Congress will feature one Joint Plenary session and four Joint Keynote Sessions.  Don’t miss the leaders of the different disciplines give innovative talks.    

Poster Previews

Monday, 2 November, 13:30 – 14:00 
Tuesday, 3 November, 09:15 - 09:45 and 13:30 – 14:00

There are three poster preview sessions taking place before the Tuesday Poster Session. These sessions allow each poster presenter to have a few minutes to highlight their research to the entire Congress and give the attendees a quick, concise look at the poster before interacting with authors.  

Congress Banquet

Monday, 2 November, 19:30 – 21:00

Kick-off the congress and join your fellow attendees for the Congress Banquet. Come and taste the local cuisine. The reception is open to all full congress attendees. Congress attendees may purchase extra tickets for their guest.     

Joint Poster Session: JTu5A

Wednesday, 3 November, 18:30 – 20:00

Poster presentations offer an effective way to communicate new research findings and provide a venue for lively and detailed discussion between presenters and interested viewers. Don’t miss this opportunity to discuss current research one-on-one with the presenters.
