Symposium EL17-Halide Perovskite and Other Low-Dimensional Light Emitters—Synthesis, Defect Passivation and Optoelectronic Applications

Light-emitting nanomaterials are key components for future applications such as near-eye displays (augmented/virtual reality), autonomous vehicles, laser diodes, quantum communications, wearable smart healthcare devices, biosensors, and other optoelectronic applications. With these possibilities, recent research in the field of light-emitting nanomaterials has mainly focused on achieving high-efficiency, high-stability materials and devices, as well as developing alternative environmentally benign light-emitting materials.

This symposium will cover various emerging low-dimensional light-emitting materials, including metal halide perovskites and their derivatives, inorganic semiconductor nanocrystals, carbon dots, graphene quantum dots, and other low-dimensional nanostructures. The discussion in the proposed symposium will comprehensively encompass precise material synthesis, surface defect passivation, thin-film processing, device interface engineering, and in-depth photophysical/electrical characterization to achieve high-performance optoelectronic devices. Therefore, the proposed symposium will cover a complete range of topics regarding emerging light-emitting low-dimensional materials from fundamental chemistry and physics to related practical applications.

Topics will include:

  • Low-dimensional metal halide perovskite emitters

  • Colloidal perovskite nanocrystals
  • Colloidal inorganic quantum dots and other low-dimensional nanostructures
  • Lead-free perovskite and perovskite-derivative emitters
  • Carbon-based nanoscale emitters
  • Novel synthetic routes and growth mechanisms of emitters
  • Photophysics of light-emitting materials
  • Surface chemistry and ligand engineering
  • Novel defect passivation processes
  • Novel device architectures for light-emitting diodes
  • Degradation mechanism of emitters and their devices
  • Alternative patterning methods
  • Down/up-conversion emitters, films, and display/lighting devices
  • Progress towards electrically pumped lasing and devices
