S7: Emerging Materials for Next Generation Photovoltaics



Economically viable, high-performance photovoltaic systems with long-term stability are a promising renewable energy solution to replace fossil fuels. Various next-generation solar cells have been exploited to facilitate photovoltaic systems by using novel device architectures and cost-effective materials and processes. This symposium will address recent material developments in next-generation solar cells, such as perovskite, dye-sensitized, organic photovoltaic, quantum dot, and other emerging solar cells.  Topics will bring together interdisciplinary experts on state-of-art technologies of photovoltaic devices by focusing on fundamentals and applications from materials to devices.


Proposed Session Topics:

  • Synthesis, functionalization, processing, and self-assembly of nanomaterials for next-generation solar cells
  • Solution process for fabrication of hybrid solar cells
  • Emerging materials for perovskite, dye-sensitized, organic, and quantum dot solar cells
  • Strategies for realizing environmentally friendly and long-term stable next-generation solar cells
  • Other photovoltaic technologies and applications


Symposium Organizers:

  • Hyun Suk Jung, Sungkyunkwan University, Korea
  • Hua Zhang, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore
  • Gao Hanwei, Florida State University, USA
  • Dan Wang, Chinese Academy of Sciences, China
  • Iván Mora Seró, Jaume I University, Spain
  • Bin Liu, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore
  • Sang Hyuk Im, Kyung Hee University, Korea
