Near-IR Emitters and Quantum Light Sources: Computation, Modeling, and Experiment (VIRTUAL)
11/15/2021 - 11/19/2021
Meeting Description:

Near infrared (NIR) emission has potential applications in night-vision-readable displays, light-emitting diodes, telecommunication, optical sensing, photocatalysis, bioimaging, and photodynamic therapy. The most widely studied NIR emitting materials include organic chromophores, metal-organic complexes, nanophosphors, semi-conductor quantum dots (QDs), and carbon nanotubes (CNTs). However, rational design of highly efficient NIR-emitting materials is still an open challenge due to our limited understanding of interplays between molecular/structural distortions associated with an electronic excitation that promotes radiative pathways and those responsible for nucleus vibrations that govern non-radiative processes. Theory and computations joined with data driven methods, such as machine learning and cheminformatics, could provide useful interpretations of experimental data and a better understanding of the material's light-driven properties at the atomistic level, while also inspire new experimental efforts.

The conference aims to bring together theoreticians and experimentalists for a timely discussion of modern developments, applications, and challenges in this field from both theoretical and experimental perspectives to boost the rational design of novel NIR-emitting materials moving them from the proof-of-concept stage to implementations in optoelectronics, photovoltaics, sensing, and other technologies.
