Meeting Description

Electronic and photonic devices that combine the properties of organic, inorganic, and nano material systems have emerged as important subjects of fundamental and technologically oriented research. Such hybrid systems offer unique electronic and photonic functions that cannot be obtained from the individual materials systems alone. The goal of this conference will be to discuss and analyze new and exciting phenomena that are only possible when organic and inorganic materials are combined, and to better understand their potential impact via the spirited cross-disciplinary discussion and repartee that only Gordon conferences can offer. Continuous development of the hybrid electronics/photonics field will have important impact in two areas. Most immediately, it will help us to answer a number of fundamental questions that are emerging in the interdisciplinary fields of contemporary physical sciences. Over the longer term, it will also unlock the potential for paradigm-changing solutions to important challenges of the 21stcentury, such as solar energy utilization and environmentally friendly technologies, among others. An excellent example of emerging hybrid devices is a new type of solar energy cells based on solution-processed perovskite inorganic semiconductors in combination with organic and/or nano-materials. The field of perovskite solar cells has witnessed an incredibly fast increase in cell efficiencies during the past 3-4 years. Many fundamental issues regarding organic and inorganic semiconductors and their interplays in perovskite cells are still poorly understood. For the 2016 session of this Hybrid conference series, one of our goals will be to explore some of the most important fundamental challenges at the interface between dissimilar materials in such hybrid devices. We will bring together leading scientists in the fields of organic and inorganic semiconductors and also experts in perovskite solar cells, and hope to create a unique interdisciplinary environment that would not be available in a more specialized conference. This conference would allow the hybrid community to benefit from the many years of experience of the traditional organic semiconductor and organic solar cell research. This conference sessions in 2016 will also cover new exciting topics such as 2D materials, interfacial charge transfer phenomena, etc.
