New Concepts in Solar and Thermal Radiation Conversion Conference

August 1-5, 2021 | USA

This conference centers on discovering and exploring novel concepts in optics, photonics, and plasmonics with significant potential to improve the performance of solar and thermal energy conversion devices, as well as larger systems with significant sustainable energy components. Recent developments in material science, nanophotonics, plasmonics, and metasurfaces make this a uniquely promising time to develop corresponding new capabilities. These can then have direct applications in a range of fields, including but not limited to solar photovoltaics, sustainable food-energy-water systems, energy-efficient lighting, infrared sources, and the thermophotovoltaic generation of electricity from heat. Topics of relevance in thermophotovoltaics include design of advanced photonic crystals effective in high-temperature environments, management of excess heat in the photovoltaic cell, enhancement of the low-bandgap photovoltaic cells, and integrating various components into high-performance systems.
