Symposium QT01-Excitonic Materials

Excitons or bound electron-hole pairs form the backbone of a large class of low-dimensional and quantum materials showing exotic physical and chemical properties. Current studies in Excitonic Materials are really progressing very rapidly in newer directions as well as in novel materials. Therefore, the main focus of this symposium will be to catch the recent progresses in the materials science of Excitonic Materials from both fundamental science and emerging applications. Another important objective of the proposed symposium on Excitonic Materials will be to have cross-disciplinary exchange of results and ideas among researchers working on different aspects of excitons.

Topics will include:

  • Excitons in Novel Materials: 2D Materials, Perovskites, Oxides, Group IV, II-VI and III-V semiconductors, Colloidal Nanocrystals, Organic Semiconductors and Polymers, Synthesis & Fabrication, Metamaterials.
  • Excitonic phenomena: Exciton Transport, Spintronics & Magneto-optical properties, Excitonic BEC etc, Excitonic Molecules, Rydberg Excitons, Mahan excitons, Excitons under strain and electric fields.
  • Time resolved studies of Excitons: Exciton-Polaritons, Plexitons, Non-linear Optical Properties, Ultra-fast Spectroscopy.
  • Excitons in Quantum Materials and Quantum Technologies: Excitonic Qubits, Quantum Control of Single Excitons, Quantum Coherent Control of Excitons, Single-photon emitters based on Excitons.
  • Different varieties of Excitons: Topological Excitons, Interfacial Excitons, Hybrid Frenkel-Mott Wannier Excitons, Electronic Structure Calculation of Excitonic Materials, Dark and Bright Excitons, Interlayer excitons.
  • Device Applications of Excitons: Excitonic Photochemistry and Photocatalysis, Energy Harvesting and Solar Energy Conversions, Energy Efficient Solid State Lighting, Biomaterials and Biotechnology.
  • A tutorial complementing this symposium is tentatively planned.
