GRC on Colloidal Semiconductor Nanocrystals

InterNano - Upcoming Events - July 21, 2014 - 2:17pm
July 20, 2014 - In its relatively short lifetime, research in field of colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals has clarified and revealed new concepts and mechanisms in photophysics, electronic structure, magnetism, interfacial chemistry, redox chemistry, charge transport, crystal nucleation and growth, and self-assembly, and has introduced new approaches to energy harvesting and conversion, electronics, catalysis, chemical and biological sensing, and biological imaging. The quantum dot field is growing rapidly and in many different directions. We created this new GRC to celebrate, compile, and push forward research in this complex interdisciplinary field. The conference will bring together an outstanding and diverse group of scientists who are making exciting contributions in both fundamental and applied research within the field of colloidal nanocrystals.
