Overview

 

Organised by Professor Laura Herz, Professor Richard Friend FRS and Professor Peter Edwards FRS

Bulk nanostructures have a phenomenal impact on many different areas of science and application as they offer large functional areas per material volume. This interdisciplinary meeting will bring together leading scientists working on diverse subjects such as organic and inorganic semiconductors, electrochemistry and materials morphology to discuss the development of such structures and their implementation in renewable energy technologies.
