T1S6: Advanced Multifunctional Nanomaterials and Systems for Photovoltaic and Photonic Technologies

Register for 11th CMCEE


Ceramic technologies for sustainable development


Due to the soaring global demand of environmentally-friendly energy, the development of new types of energy harvesting devices has been strongly driven. Recently, there has been interest in utilization of quantum dots, nanoparticles, nanowires or nanorods, nanonetworks, and metal nanoparticles for photovoltaic and photonic applications. This symposium will focus on new nanomaterials, such as graphene, pervoskite, and chalcopyrite and their applications for high-efficient and cost-effective photovoltaic and photonic devices. Innovative photonic concepts for renewable energy and energy harvesting, such as light harvesting and management and surface plasmonic effect will also be presented. 


Proposed session topics:

  • Synthesis, functionalization, processing, and self-assembly of nanomaterials
  • Next generation solar cells with perovskite, chalcopyrite, and graphene based materials
  • Nanostructured materials and electrochemistry for dye-sensitized solar cells
  • Materials and fabrication process for thin film solar cells
  • Solution-process-based hybrid solar cells
  • Nanostructured materials for high-efficiency Si solar cells
  • Photonic technologies for light harvesting and management
  • Energy-efficient printing technologies for photovoltaic and photonic devices
