Welcome to St. Petersburg - the cradle of quantum dots!
The Photonic Colloidal Nanostructures: Synthesis, Properties, and Applications (PCNSPA) international conference is a major forum for discussion and dissemination of new results on all topics concerning fundamental and applied research on photonic colloidal nanomaterials and nanostructures, with an emphasis on semiconductor and plasmonic colloidal crystalline nanoparticles.
PCNSPA 2018 will be the second meeting in a series of nanoscience conferences initiated in 2016.
As a conference dedicated to the physics and chemistry of one of the most technological and socially relevant classes of optical materials and their applications, PCNSPA 2018 is delighted to support the International Day of Light and contribute to its aims, in particular"Emphasise the importance of basic research in the fundamental science of light, the need for investment in light-based technology to develop new applications, and the global necessity to promote careers in science and engineering in these fields".
In 2018, the main themes of the conference will be:
Advances in colloidal nanocrystal synthesis
Optical, electronic and magnetic properties of photonic colloidal nanostructures
Interfacial phenomena and engineered self-assembly of photonic colloidal nanostructures
Hybrid, anisotropic, and chiral photonic colloidal nanostructures
Interactions between colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals and plasmonic nanoparticles
Advances in theoretical modeling of photonic colloidal nanostructures
Photonic colloidal nanostructures for energy harvesting, sensing, lasing, imaging, and biomedical applications
