First workshop on nanostructured materials for light harvesting technologies: From solar fuels to energy storage
This 2-day workshop brings together three networks of European research Institutions to mark the International Year of Light and Light-Based Technologies. Its purpose is to share results, views and challenges in the field of nanostructured materials for energy, with a particular interest in materials and light harvesting technologies and related energy and environmental applications: Solar fuels from artificial photosynthesis (photo- and photo-electrochemical water splitting and CO2 photoreduction), novel PV architectures and energy storage devices. The meeting is materials-science oriented, and includes topics such as the synthesis of novel heterostructures for efficient charge separation, the role of electronic junctions in charge transfer, computational tools to study photocatalytic reactions, reactor design and operation, non-conventional catalyst scaffolds, transient spectroscopy measurements, interfacial engineering and (photo)electrochemical characterisation. Presentations about industrial implementation of new materials will also be included.
The workshop is open to the scientific community, particularly PhD students and young researchers. It will include a poster session, with a brief introduction of the posters in an oral presentation.
