Symposium EL02-Towards Atomically Precise Colloidal Materials for Conventional and Quantum Optoelectronics

Colloidal materials, with their solution processability, offer a number of opportunities for developments and future applications in various fields including (opto)electronic and quantum technologies. Research in the past several decades has witnessed remarkable progress in the synthesis and understanding of structures, surface chemistry, dopants, defects, energy conversion, and light absorption and emission properties of many colloidal systems such as pnictide-, chalcogenide-based, and perovskite nanocrystals. Along with these advances, many novel device integration techniques and unique device architectures have also been accomplished, contributing to improving the performance of (opto)electronic and integrated quantum devices including quantum dot-based light emitting diodes, laser diodes, photosensors, photovoltaics, and integrated quantum nanophotonic circuits. Further innovations in this multidisciplinary field to realize low-cost devices with optimal efficiency and high scalability will require discussions from many scientific communities.

The purpose of this symposium is to provide a platform for such discussions among theorists and experimentalists working in various fields including materials synthesis and characterization; structural engineering; and device integration, optimization, and simulations. Besides participants from academia, we also expect this symposium to attract strong participation from the industry since state-of-the-art devices using emerging colloidal systems are projected to replace traditional technologies. The series of symposiums on colloidal nanoparticles, metal halide perovskites, nanostructures for emerging optoelectronic applications, emerging materials for quantum information technologies, etc. over the past few years has received great interest from international leaders and researchers in both academic and industry. To elaborate on that success, this symposium hopes to bring together experts from different fields to share their cutting-edge science to bridge the gaps among fundamental materials research, device implementation, and current industrially available technologies in the fields of display, lighting, and quantum information.

Topics will include:

  • Quantum optoelectronics of colloidal materials - applications and fundamental studies of colloidal materials as sources of quantum light and single-photon non-linear optical elements, super radiance.
  • High performance classical light source -- high brightness and high color purity LEDs and lasers.
  • Advances in the colloidal synthesis and atomically precise synthesis of nanomaterials -- approaching the limits of both homogeneous and heterogeneous linewidths.
  • Electronic structure, spin, carrier dynamics, energy transfers, and surface chemistries of nanomaterials.
  • Computational, data- driven, and machine learning accelerated discovery of nanomaterials applicable for optoelectronic device integration and their properties.
  • Large area and scalable integration of nanoparticles including assembly, patterning, printing, and coatings.
