You are invited to participate in the International Conference on Novel  Materials for Energy Conversion and Optoelectronics, to be held in Santa Fe, United States,  from 11-12 December 2018.

The scope of the conference covers a broad range of research directions related to novel materials for applications in energy conversion and optoelectronics ranging from photovoltaics and photoelectrochemical and photocatalytic production of solar fuels, to sensing and light emission in electroluminescent devices and lasers. Materials such as halide perovskites, semiconductor quantum dots, multinary metal oxides are at the forefront of research and are promising candidates for producing future breakthroughs in these fields. Particular emphasis is on understanding the relationship between the structural properties of materials and their function in final devices, which is key to fostering further advances in device performance. Consequently, novel theoretical and characterization tools represent topics of keen interest to this conference.

Topics to be covered by the conference:
  • Perosvkites and their applications inphotovoltaics and photochemistry
  • Solar fuels
  • Energy storage
  • Semiconductor quantum dots: From fundamentals to applications
  • Photoelectrochemical and electroluminescent devices
  • CO2 reduction
  • Artificial Photosynthesis
  • Heterogeneous catalysis
Poster Session Awards

This edition, best posters of NEWE18 Poster Sessions will be rewarded with 2 prizes of 100€ each one. Awards are sponsored by the Royal Society of Chemistry.
