Scope of Symposium

The compelling need for clean energy harnessing and storage devices has become increasing evident against the backdrop of uncertainties in energy supplies, growing demand for more energy efficient systems, and their impact on local and global environment.

The emergence of inorganic nano-scaled materials as viable electronics enablers and our ability to fabricate nanowires, nanoflakes, nanoparticles, nanofilms etc from practically any material has allowed us to generate a toolbox of nano elements, which when assembled to form novel material architectures holds the promise to bring new functionalities to applications in green energy systems.

This symposium will focus on new materials and devices for sustainable energy applications that would include solar cells, photo-electrochemical conversions, charge storage devices, and thermoelectrics.

Scope of the symposium would include the following topics:
- Synthesis of nanomaterials for green energy applications by chemical synthesis, physical vapor deposition, electrospinning
- Novel device architectures and novel processes for device fabrication based on nanonets, nanowires, and other nanostructured materials
- Simulation and modeling of nanomaterials and nanodevices for energy harnessing and storage
- Solar cells - dye sensitized, bulk heterojunciton, organic-inorganic hybrid, thin film
- Charge Storage - electrochemical charge storage, batteries, supercapacitors, thermal and phase-change charge storage
- Energy conversion / harvesting / scavenging: photo-electrochemical conversions, photocatalysis, thermoelectrics, piezoelectrics
- Integrated devices for energy efficiency, energy harnessing and storage
