“Next Generation Photovoltaics with Organic Metal Halide Perovskites” by Dr. Prashant V. Kamat, University of Notre Dame

Host: Doug Pernik

Abstract

In recent years, quantum dot solar cells (QDSC) and Organic-Inorganic Halide Perovskiteshave emerged as the potential contenders for making transformative changes. The quest to design high efficiency perovskite solar cells demands better understanding of the excited state behavior and charge separation of photoactive films.¬† The transient absorption studies have now been … Read the rest »

“Direct Correlation between Optical Properties at Sub-nanometer Scale and Structure at Atomic Scale, In-situ Performance in a STEM” by Dr. Jordi Arbiol, ICREA, Spain

Host: Dr. Brian Korgel

Abstract

Technology at the nanoscale has become one of the main challenges in science as new physical effects appear and can be modulated at will. Superconductors, materials for spintronics, electronics, optoelectronics, chemical sensing, and new generations of functionalized materials are taking advantage of the low dimensionality, improving their properties and opening … Read the rest »

“Ab Initio Prediction of Crystal Structures of Organic Molecules” by Dr. Costas Pantelides, Imperial College London

Host: Dr. Michael Baldea

Abstract

Organic molecules may form multiple crystal structures (polymorphs) which have significantly different physical properties, such as solubility, color, and mechanical strength. This is of particular importance to several sectors of the process industries, including pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals and fine chemicals, a large proportion of the products of which are solids. There … Read the rest »
