Optical Nanostructures and Advanced Materials for Photovoltaics (PV)

Optical Nanostructures and Advanced Materials for Photovoltaics (PV)

14 - 17 November 2016
Kongresshalle am Zoo Leipzig, Leipzig, Germany

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.
