Advancements in Hybrid and Organic Photovoltaics: Insights from HOPV23

The 15th International Conference on Hybrid and Organic Photovoltaics #HOPV23 took place from the 12th to the 14th of June 2023 at the historic Senate House University Library, located in the heart of London.

This premier conference, counting with Tracey Clarke (University College London), James Durrant (Imperial College London, Swansea University) and Trystan Watson (SPECIFIC, College of Engineering Swansea University) as scientific organisers, brought together the world’s leading experts and innovators in the field of hybrid and organic photovoltaics.

The conference delved into the cutting-edge developments, functionality, and modelling of materials and devices for hybrid and organic solar cells. Topics ranged from perovskite solar cells, organic solar cells, quantum dot solar cells, to dye-sensitized solar cells, and their integration into complementary devices like photoelectrochemical water splitting.

Throughout the conference, captivating sessions captured the attention of participants, fostering engaging discussions and providing an excellent platform for networking. More than just a conference, HOPV23 served as a global forum where scientists and researchers could exchange insights, share the latest advancements, and forge collaborations in the field.

The conference featured renowned Keynote Speakers such as Richard Friend, Thuc-Quyen Nguyen and Sang Il Seok. Moreover, distinguished Invited speakers collaborated to deliver exceptional presentations, sharing their expertise, and further enriching the knowledge exchange.

In addition to established researchers, the conference provided a platform for young scientists and new researchers to showcase their work through afternoon sessions and poster presentations. Congratulations to Nisreen Alshehri, Grace Dansoa, Vladimir Held, Imme Schuringa and Daniel Balzer for their remarkable work, being awarded as the Best Poster prizes.
