Symposia at a Glance

MCARE 2017 will address a variety of materials and technologies that are critically needed for development of state-of-art technologies of alternative and renewable energy. The technical program features plenary, keynote and invited talks, contributed oral and poster presentations for thematically-focused technical symposiums. MCARE 2017 consists of 12 symposia

[Symposium 1] Materials for Solar Fuel Production and Applications

Recently, solar fuel production in an artificial system offers an opportunity for generating renewable transportation fuels to replace fossil resources. Sunlight is used to split water into hydrogen and oxygen, or produce carbon-based fuels from carbon dioxide and water. A central theme of the Symposium 1 will be the recent progress and scientific challenges of integrating the light absorbers and catalysts into subsystems, with the goal of achieving closed photo(electro)chemical cycles, CO2 reduction (or proton reduction) and H2O oxidation in the single integrated system.
  A solar fuel can be produced when and where sunlight is available, and stored and transported for later usage. Various systems made of engineered materials have been developed to reduce proton to hydrogen or carbon dioxide to carbon-based fuels, including photoelectrochemical (PEC) cell, photocatalytic system, solar cell based method and etc.
  This special session will bring experts together from the different fields of state-of-art technologies of solar fuel production, which will foster the scientific exchange.

• Photoelectrochemical (PEC) system for solar fuel production
• Photocatalytic water splitting
• Photocatalytic carbon dioxide reduction
• Solar cell-PEC hybrid system for solar fuel production
• New catalysts for solar fuel generation

[Symposium 2] Materials Challenges in Perovskite and Next Generation Solar Cells

Recently, advanced materials and technologies for perovskite and next-generation solar cells have been exploited to develop economically viable, high-performance solar cells. Organo-metal trihalide perovskites have revolutionized the field of thin film solar cells due to their meteoric rise of power conversion efficiency (PCE) of a record value 22.1%. These materials exhibit salient properties such as strong light absorption from the visible into the near-infrared spectral region, long carrier diffusion length, and tailorable optoelectronic properties through compositional engineering of halides and cations. These properties are subservient to the formation and nature of the crystals, morphology, and growth. One of the most fantastic features of organo-metal trihalide perovskite is its ability to self-assemble between precursors of solid-solid, vapour-vapour, vapour-solid, co-solution, solid-solution phases into high quality crystalline powder or thin films at near-ambient conditions. Despite the high efficiency and excellent opt-electronic properties the biggest problem of organo-metal trihalide perovskite is stability under heat and light soaking conditions. This symposium will focus on the key issues and phenomena that are at the frontier of understanding and materials development in perovskite solar cells and next generation solar cells, addressing the following topics but not limited to them.

• Materials and issues for perovskite solar cells
  - Fundamental understanding of the materials properties using theory and experiments
  - Role of interface interactions
  - Design of alternate stable perovskite
  - Novel charge transporting materials
  - Crystal growth kinetics
  - Device stability issues

[Symposium 3] Advanced Materials for Energy Storage

Batteries are devices that convert chemical energy into electrical energy. There are many types of batteries available, representing a multi-billion dollar industry. The state-of-the-art electrical energy storage systems are not able to meet the requirements for energy-efficient use in transportation, grid and commercial technologies. Battery technology seeks new concepts in materials design to overcome the current limitations of performance and lifetime. More critical insight is required to both in terms of material structures as well as interfacial reactions to produce next-generation electrode materials and battery cells enabling higher energy densities, high power densities and longer cycling abilities. This symposium will explore novel energy storage materials and technologies that are critical in making the current energy storage systems more effective in the future. In addition, we also strongly welcome abstracts on supercapacitors and flexible batteries for self-powering small electronics.

[Symposium 5] Spectral Conversion Materials for Energy Applications

More efficient energy conversion technologies are an essential challenge facing the increasing demand for energy supply. Spectral conversion luminescent materials are potential candidates to increase the efficiency of solar cells as well as other environmentally relevant technologies, such as photocatalysis, solar fuels and artificial photosynthesis, where usually large parts of the solar spectrum do not contribute to the harvesting scheme. Even the most efficient single-junction solar cells present energy losses of ~30% due to thermalization of high-energy photons and ~20% due to transparency of sub-bandgap photons. Downconversion or quantum cutting, luminescent downshifting, and upconversion are alternatives to diminish these losses. Yet, while cutting edge research conducted around the globe led to promising achievements, remaining challenges (such as low quantum efficiency in nanomaterials, weak and/or narrow absorption, and broadband illumination under real sun conditions) have to be addressed in order to take full advantage of spectral conversion materials. In this context, the rational design of suitable optical materials is crucial for energy conversion enhancement, and approaches reach from novel host materials and dopant optimization for upconversion and downconversion materials to innovative hybrid materials, e.g. combing lanthanide-doped materials, QDs, organic dyes, carbon-based structures and photonic concepts.

It is the scope of this symposium to provide a platform for the presentation and discussion of recent achievements, developments and remaining challenges regarding the design, synthesis and characterization of spectral conversion materials as well as their assembly to more efficient devices. It is the particular aim to foster the exchange between experts from different fields, such as materials design and chemical materials synthesis (e.g., nanostructures, QDs), synthesis of optical micro- and macromaterials, spectral characterization, and device development in order to communicate knowledge and demands between the different communities. Moreover, taking advantage from interdisciplinary approaches and multifunctional materials, experts in synthesis and characterization of spectral conversion materials from related research areas (such as bioprobe, phosphor or laser design) are greatly welcome.

Topics will focus on, but not been limited to, spectral conversion materials with emphasis on materials design and synthesis, characterization and optimization, assembly of hybrid structures, clarification of mechanisms, device fabrication, and applications in energy (and beyond) technologies.
