The nanoGe International Conference on Emerging Light Emitting Materials (EMLEM23), took place  in Paphos (Cyprus) from 13th to 15th of November 2023.

The second edition of the nanoGe EMLEM conference series focused on new families of light emitting materials that have been developed over the past decade and possess diverse luminescent properties. These materials also offer new manufacturing and device integration approaches. In particular, we invited contributions from academia and industry devoted to the following materials classes:

  • Perovskite Nanomaterials
  • III-V Quantum Dots
  • Zn-Chalcogenide Quantum Dots
  • IR-emissive Nanomaterials
  • Metal Halides
  • Two-dimensional light emitting materials

The conference covered the following topics:

  • Synthesis and Surface Chemistry
  • Microstructure and Defects
  • Photophysics and Optoelectronic Properties
  • Theoretical Studies and Advanced Modeling
  • Ligth Emitting Devices and Lasers
  • Novel Phenomena and Device Approaches in Light Emission/Lasing
  • Quantum Light Sources
