EXCON 2021

The 13th International Conference on Excitonic and Photonic Processes in Condensed Matter and Nano Materials

EXCON2021, the 13th International Conference on Excitonic and Photonic Processes in Condensed Matter and Nano Materials will be held in Lund, Sweden in June 2021.

The previous twelve EXCON conferences were held in Darwin, Australia (1994), Kurort Gohrisch, Germany (1996), Boston, USA (1998), Osaka, Japan (2000), Darwin, Australia (2002), Cracow, Poland (2004), Winston-Salem, USA (2006), Kyoto, Japan (2008), Brisbane, Australia (2010), Groningen, The Netherlands (2012) Montréal, Canada (2015) and Nara, Japan (2018). 

The latest EXCON2018 in Japan:

The name EXCON suggests that the conference is about excited states (often called excitons) in molecules, nanostructures and solids and their transformation into different forms of energy.

The conference will provide an interdisciplinary forum for mutual research communications between solid-state physicists, photo-physicists, photo-chemists and photo-biologists, material scientists, as well as device-oriented researchers from academia and industry.

A variety of excitonic and photonic phenomena in diverse materials from bulk materials to micro- and nanostructures, such as quantum dots, metallic antennas, atomic-layer materials, bio-materials, molecular materials, are covered in the conference.

Confirmed invited speakers:

Prof. Anna Köhler, University of Bayreuth (Germany). Excitations in organic semiconductors.

Prof. Libai Huang, Purdue University (USA), Ultrafast nanoscopy of energy and charge transport.

Prof. Donatas Zigmantas, Lund University (Sweden). Ultrafast excitonic processes in biological systems

Prof. Tomáš Mančal, Charles University, Prague (Czech Republic). Coherence in excitation energy transfer.

Prof. Natalie Banerji, University of Bern (Switzerland). Spatilly and time-resolved electronic processes in organic and hybrid materials.

Prof. Samuel Stranks, University of Cambridge (UK). Exciton and charge dynamics in metal-halide perovskites
