Key Takeaways from the Conference on Perovskite Thin Film Photovoltaics and Perovskite Photonics and Optoelectronics NIPHO23

From the 15th to the 16th of May 2023 took place the Conference on Perovskite Thin Film Photovoltaics and Perovskite Photonics and Optoelectronics (#NIPHO23) in Pavía, Italy. With the exceptional organisation of Giulia Grancini, Mónica Lira-Cantú and Silvia Colella. We truly couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful setting and venue.

The conference focused on recent advances in the field of hybrid perovskite based solarcells with a deeper look and particular emphasis into the current stability issues, essential for the scaling up of this technology. In which renowned scientific researchers have presented their work on the synthesis of low dimensional perovskite, the techniques for perovskite deposition and the photophysics of this exciting material.

Hence, it covered many relevant topics such as 2D/3D Interface Engineering, Stabilization of Bulk Perovskite phase, or Engineering Tandem Perovskite/Perovskite solar cells, among many others. The sessions were certainly fascinating, which meant a great participation from the attendees and a fabulous opportunity for networking.

A big shout out to all the participants that joined us at #NIPHO23, we are truly pleased as the feedback has been both nurturing and rewarding. As always we would like to thank again the Conference Organizers and sponsor, Sciprios, who made it possible. 

We had the privilege to count with Michael Graetzel as a Keynote Speaker, as well as the collaboration of the Invited Speakers: Sam Stranks, Michele Saba, Maria Antonietta Loi, Iván Mora Sero, Antonio Agresti, Sonia Raga, Annalisa Bruno, and Shuxia Tao. We really enjoyed getting all their insights and developments in the field.

New researchers and young scientists also had the opportunity to present their work in the afternoon session, as well as in the poster session, showcasing the outstanding and innovative research on fundamental aspects, such as the theoretical description of the electronic structure of perovskites or novel advanced characterization techniques. Congratulations to Luyan Wu  for winning the Best Poster prize presenting her work on ‘Surface Dimensionality Reduction via Forming Dion-Jacobson Phase Enhancing Humidity Stability of Inorganic Perovskite Solar Cells’.

This conference allows us to bring together the scientific community, network with other professionals in their field and discover new trends, techniques, and ideas that inspire research.
