Online Conference

The 13th International Conference on Hybrid and Organic Photovoltaics (HOPV21) took place online from the 24th to the 28th of May 2021.

Recent   research   progress  in   the   field   of   HOPV  is   marked   by  important breakthroughs   towards  their   use   for   a   sustainable   future.   Relentless   endeavours   helped   to   achieve   high   efficiencies   and  stabilities   with   perovskite   solar   cells,   organic   phototovoltaics   and   dye   sensitised   solar   cells  in  outdoor   and  indoor   environments.   Cross-disciplinary   fundamental   understanding   and   modelling  of   photophysical   processes,   as   well   as  improvements  in   manufacturing   solutions   for   mass  production   are   crucial  in   order   to   continue   the   drive   towards  lower   costs,   while   maintaining   high  levels   of   scientific   understanding.   This  is   traditionally   where   the   ongoing   front-end   research  is  presented.   Leading   experts  in   the   HOPV   field   come   together   from   academia   and  industry   and  will   be   gathered  in   an   “online”   format  in   order   to   discuss   novel   research,   concepts,   theory   and  developments  in   hybrid   photovoltaics.   Additional   perspective  is   offered   on   the   advantages,   the  current   trends  in   relation   to   different   materials   and   applications,   namely   halide   perovskites,  organic   materials,  light-absorbing   dyes,   quantum   dots,   tandem   /   multi-junction   solar   cells   and  solar-driven   catalysis.
