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.
