Recent advances in microelectronics in energy harvesting applications have increased demand for the enhancement of the performance metrics of all storage and energy conversion devices. This includes piezoelectric nanogenerators, organic solar cells and thermoelectrics. The international conference entitled “Frontiers in Nanomaterials for Energy Harvesting and Storage”, organized by LE STUDIUM Loire Valley Institute for Advanced Studies, will be held on the 27th-29th August 2018 in Tours, France.

Topics that will be covered include, among others:

  • novel processing techniques for nanostructured materials with high-energy conversion efficiencies,
  • new materials for energy harvesting and storage,
  • theory and modelling of these materials and devices,
  • new structural and functional characterization methods,
  • innovative design and integration of low-power/self-powered devices for next generation of sensors and actuators.

Confirmed invited speakers:

  • Dr Stefania Benedetti: Tailoring plasmonic response in metal/oxide nanosystems
  • Dr Dong-Jik Kim: Flexo-Photovoltaic Effect
  • Dr Noëlle Gogneau: High-potential of III-Nitride Nanowires for Piezoelectric Energy Harvesting: Towards Wireless Sensors
