Welcome to Saint Petersburg - the cradle of quantum dots!
The international conference Photonic Colloidal Nanostructures: Synthesis, Properties, and Applications (PCNSPA) 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 2020 will be the third meeting in a series of nanoscience conferences initiated in 2016.
PCNSPA 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".
PCNSPA 2020 topics include, but are not limited to:
Advances in synthesis of photonic colloidal nanoparticles
Optical, electronic, and magnetic properties of photonic colloidal nanostructures
Interfacial phenomena and engineered self-assembly of photonic colloidal nanostructures
Chirality in photonic colloidal nanostructures
Hybrid photonic colloidal nanostructures: interactions between colloidal semiconductor nanocrystals, plasmonic nanoparticles, polymeric nanoparticles, molecules, and ions
Advances in theoretical modeling of photonic colloidal nanostructures
Applications of photonic colloidal nanostructures: light harvesting and photovoltaics, imaging and sensing, diagnostics and therapy, lasing, photocatalysis, optoelectronics, optical limiters, infrared emitters and detectors
