Edinburgh Instruments to attend NanoBio 2018 | Heraklion, Crete

NanoBio 2018- International Conference on Nanotechnologies and Bionanoscience

We are pleased to announce that we will be attending the NanoBio 2018 conference taking place in Heraklion, Crete. The conference will be from the 24-28 September, 2018, and will provide a forum for scientists and engineers from academia and industry.

One of the main objectives is to discuss the forefront of research, and to address the theory, design, and development of advanced materials and nanotechnologies in relation to the field of energy and health applications. The conference is doing this by featuring 5 workshops, which are:

  • Nanobiomaterials and Nanomedicine
  • Perovskite Optoelectronics and Solar Cells
  • Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine
  • Graphene & Related 2D Materials
  • Nanoelectronics & Bioelectronics

Our Application Scientist, Stuart Thomson, Ph.D., will be in attendance and will be presenting his poster “Photoluminescence Spectroscopy of Halide Perovskites”, in workshop 2, Perovskite Optoelectronics and Solar Cells. (See Abstract Below)

Halide perovskites are a promising new class of materials for a wide variety of optoelectronic applications such as photovoltaics, light emitting diodes, lasers and optical sensing. They have received widespread attention due to their many attractive synthetic and photophysical properties, namely: solution processability, high tunability, long charge carrier lifetimes and high charge carrier mobilities.

Photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy is a powerful tool for the investigation and optimisation of the properties of perovskites. Using PL spectroscopy we have investigated the photophysics of several halide perovskite photovoltaic absorbers and light emitters. Using time-resolved PL, the influence of annealing time on the charge carrier lifetime of the photovoltaic absorber CH3NH3PbI3 was investigated, while temperature dependent PL was employed to determine the orthorhombic and cubic phase transition temperatures of CH3NH3PbI3.

PL spectroscopy is particularly well suited to study perovskite emitters. Steady state and time-resolved PL was used to determine the chromacity coordinates and carrier lifetimes of the promising two dimensional white light emitter α-(DMEN)PbBr4. In addition, the temperature dependence of the PLQY of CsPbBr3 was measured using a novel variable temperature integrating sphere.

Stuart will be available to discuss the latest news and applications at Edinburgh Instruments. If you are going to be in attendance, then why not arrange to meet with him by contacting him at stuart.thomson@edinst.com.

Invited Speakers, as well as experts and stakeholders from academia and industry will be given a platform for innovation from early-career researchers, young investigators and entrepreneurs. NanoBio organisers believe that the conference will provide an ideal environment to develop new collaborations and opportunities to meet the experts and stakeholders of the rapidly growing fields of Nanotechnology and Bionanoscience.

We look forward to seeing you there!
