Optical Nanostructures and Advanced Materials for Photovoltaics (PV) brings together experts in nanophotonics, materials science and photovoltaics to discuss the latest developments in nanophotonics and advanced materials for the next generation of solar cells. Nano- and micro-structured materials and photon management schemes offer unprecedented opportunities to control both the optical and electrical properties of next-generation solar cells. This meeting covers all aspects of novel materials and optical nano- and micro-structures for photovoltaic applications, from surface textures and diffraction gratings through to emerging topics such as plasmonics, nanowires, quantum dots, and perovskites, among many more.
