HOPV14 - International Conference on Hybrid and Organic Photovoltaics

The 6th International Conference on Hybrid and Organic Photovoltaics took place from 11th to 14th May 2014, in the beautiful and historical city of Lausanne, Switzerland. The group presented four works in the framework of BI-DSC project.

Solar energy has an enormous potential for fulfilling the urgent quest for developing renewable sources to satisfy the growing demand for energy on the global scale. Hybrid solar cells combining inorganic and organic materials are making rapid advances in terms of efficiency, lifetime, and technology and have a true promise to become key technology for future solar electricity production. In addition, they present a mine of opportunities for fascinating scientific research and ground breaking technological development.

Building upon the success of the previous HOPV conferences, the HOPV 2014 conference provided an excellent opportunity for students, scientists and engineers around the world to familiarize themselves with the latest developments on solar energy harvesting and to get inspirations as well as exchanging ideas with the leading scientists from these areas. The conference was led by world renowned plenary and invited speakers covering a broad range of the latest scientific advances in the plenary sessions. The conference encouraged presentation of oral as well as poster contributions from scientists from all over the world, which was presented in two parallel sessions running in the afternoons.
