Latest news: The PCNSPA 2018 Conference will take place on 4-7 June 2018. More information in the new website in September.
Looking forward to seeing you in St. Petersburg - the cradle of quantum dots!
A conference dedicated to colloidal quantum dots, where the latest developments in the fundamental science and applications of these nanomaterials will be presented and discussed by leading scientists.
27th June - 1st July 2016 in St. Petersburg, Russia
The PCNSPA Conference 2016 will provide an international forum for physicists, chemists, biologists, material scientists, polymer scientists, chemical engineers and researchers in Photonic colloidal nanostructures to gather and discuss their latest results in one of the most exciting fields of contemporary research, and to develop and extend their international collaborations.
Colloidal quantum dots, tiny semiconductor nanocrystals formed of few hundreds to few thousands of atoms, not only display exceptionally interesting fundamental properties, they also have the potential to revolutionize optical imaging and sensing, lasers, solar cells, light-emitting diodes, nanocrystal-based electronics, bio- and chemo-sensing, theranostics, etc.
As a conference dedicated to one of the most technological and socially relevant class of materials, the PCNSPA Conference 2016 contributes to ensure that the aims of the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies 2015 will be continued beyond this Year.
The conference will be hosted at the Holiday Inn Moskovskye Vorota hotel, close to the mythical places that make St. Petersburg the cultural capital of Russia – the Hermitage museum, the Mariinsky theatre, and the channels where Dostoevsky's characters used to wander. Furthermore, it will take place during the White Nights, a time of the year immortalized by the same author.
Proceedings of the PCNSPA Conference 2016 will be published in the journal Optics and Spectroscopy.
