It is our great pleasure to announce QD2020, the 11th biannual International Conference on Quantum Dots taking place from to . The event is planned online. Please check the latest details on the website:

The conference focuses on central topics of relevance for e-conversion scientists and will bring together leading researchers and groups from industry. The range is from working on the fundamental physics, materials, synthesis to applications of Quantum Dots in both experiment and theory. QD2020 is co-supported by the DFG excellence clusters e-conversion and MCQST.

Organizers: Jonathan Finley (WSI TU Munich), Kai Müller (WSI TU Munich), Alexander Urban (LMU Munich)

Scientific topics include: 

  • Fundamentals: ab-initio and effective theories, spin and magnetic phenomena, quantum optics, quantum coherence, as well as novel analytical and spectroscopic methods…
  • Materials: epitaxial & chemically synthesized dots, nanoplatelets, atomically thin 2D materials, layered perovskites and hybrid organic / inorganic QD nanosystems…
  • Applications: quantum information technologies, energy harvesting, light-emission, sensors, detectors and biosciences….
