The aim of this two-day interactive workshop is to bring together leading international scientists working in the field of “Hot carrier dynamics in advanced concept solar cells”.
Specific emphasis is placed on theoretical and experimental understanding of non equilibrium carrier relaxation dynamics in low-dimensional semiconductor nanostructures and their exploitation for novel hot carrier type solar cells. Hereby, investigations and manipulation of ultrafast electron-phonon interactions as well as multi-exciton generation dynamics in a variety of nanostructured materials (quantum wells, dots, wires, perovskites, etc.) will be discussed. The meeting provides a unique forum for both theoretical and experimental researchers to interact at the interface between multiscale modelling, engineering of sophisticated low-dimensional semiconductor materials, and ultrafast optical spectroscopy.
