Presentation #NFM20

You are invited to participate in the nanoGe Fall Meeting, a unique series of symposia focused on advanced materials preparation and fundamental properties and their applications, in fields such as renewable energy (photovoltaics, batteries), lighting, semiconductor quantum dots, 2-D materials synthesis and semiconductors fundamentals, bioimaging, etc.

The symposia are medium size and closely related to form an exciting, interdisciplinary event that attracts key players of the respective fields either as organizers, invited speakers, or as participants.

Our meeting is held in the vibrant city of Barcelona.
