2020 Workshop

This year's pre-conference workshop will focus on Nanoparticle Perovskite Materials!

Taking place on the afternoon of Wednesday, March 11, 2020 this year's workshop will focus on the current status of state-of-the-art perovskite nanoparticle-based materials. The most promising first commercial use-case of these materials will be explored deeply by several industry talks. To complement this perspective, strong academic talks exploring fundamental understanding of the pros and cons of these materials for future use-case scenarios as well as new approaches to stabilize these very promising materials will be explored.

Please note, in order to attend the pre-conference workshop, you must be registered for the
Phosphors & Quantum Dots Industry Forum 2020 Conference + Workshop

  3. The Past, The Present, and The Future of Perovskite Nanocrystals

    Dr. Samuel Halim | Co-Founder, CEO and President of Avantama Ltd.

    Since the discovery of Perovskite nanocrystals a big hype was generated leading to sharp growth in scientific research, publications and patent applications. Nevertheless, no Perovskite nanocrystals have been seen in real world products. In this talk, we will show you what the commercialization status and outlook for Perovskite nanocrystals is.

  4. Opportunities in Solar for Perovskite-based Phosphors

    Jared Silvia, PhD | Co-Founder and CEO of BlueDot Photonics

    Solar power is expected to become the dominant source of energy in the coming decades. But improving solar panel efficiency is slowing, posing a challenge for the entire industry as it looks to drive down costs. Leveraging advances in luminescent perovskite-based materials represents a unique opportunity to boost the power output of silicon-based photovoltaics by 10-17%.

  5. Carrier Recombination Mechanisms in Halide Perovskites

    Dr. Xie Zhang | Postdoctoral Researcher of University of California, Santa Barbara

    Halide perovskites are highly efficient photovoltaic materials with power conversion efficiencies greater than 25%. To understand the fundamental origin for the superior performance, carrier recombination mechanisms are crucial. We have developed a full set of first-principles approaches that allow to quantitatively compute the carrier recombination rates and to understand the underlying recombination mechanisms. I will present a number of critical insights into the recombination mechanisms in halide perovskites that we obtained by applying our methodology to this technologically important system.

  6. Engineering High Resolution QDCFs Using Dense QD Films

    Yu Kambe | CEO and Co-Founder of NanoPattern Technologies, Inc.

    Current quantum dot color converters (QDCFs) are resolution limited due to the need for thick films that fully absorb the excitation backlight (typically ~470 nm blue light). This results in limited implementation in high-resolution displays for wearables and virtual reality. NanoPattern has developed a novel photodefinable ligand system that enables the patterning of films with QD solid loading volumes exceeding 90%. These QD systems can access high resolution patterns with films that fully absorb all of the excitation back-light. In this talk, we will discuss the progress in patterning high resolution QDCF patterns while addressing quantum yield losses due to non-radiative recombination.
