Scientific discussion meeting organised by Professor Sandrine Heutz, Professor Jenny Nelson FRS, Professor Garry Rumbles and Professor Martin Heeney.

Processes involving the photoexcited states of matter, or excitons, underpin some of today’s most important and diverse scientific advances, from solar cells, to quantum technologies via photosystems and catalysis. This meeting brings together world-leaders from traditionally separate fields to share views on the fundamental science, exploitation and characterisation of excitons, aiming to generate radical advances in exciton science and technology. 

The schedule of talks and biographies will be available soon. Speaker abstracts will be available closer to the meeting date. Recordings of the presentations will be available on this page after the meeting has taken place. Meeting papers will be published in a future issue of Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A.
