Symposium P

Advanced Inorganic Materials and Thin Film Technology for Solar Energy Harvesting and Electronic Application

The symposium focuses on the recent development of advanced inorganic materials for the solar energy harvesting and electronic application; such as solar cells, solar hydrogen production, solar glass, and other renewable energy-conversion technologies, thin film electronics.

Topics of the symposium will cover issues related to synthesis, characterisation and novel device concepts in wide range of inorganic materials including Cu-chalcogenides, CZTS, novel kesterites, CuO, Cu2O, ZnO, NiO, MoO3, TiO2, Fe2O3, BiVO4 and novel vanadates, FeSi2, FeS2, Zn3P2, Cu2S, Cu3N, Sb2S3, Sb2Se3, Bi2S3, MoS2, Co3O4, WO3 ternary ZnSn(N,P)2, Cu2SnS3, Cu4SnS4, Fe2(Si,Ge)S4, GaAs and Ge, etc.

Papers submitted to Symposium P will be considered for publication in a special issue of Journal of Materials Chemistry A (JMCA, RSC – IF 9.3)
