21–22 June 2022 Online Conference on New Generation Photovoltaics for Space (PVSPACE)


Compared with the terrestrial environment, the cosmic space environment is very harsh. Space is characterized by ultra-high vacuum, extreme temperatures and also exposure to several high-energy charged particles and rays. In line with the fast-growing space economy, new generation of photovoltaic systems e.g., perovskite solar cells and multi-junction thin film PVs have been shown a great potential for compete with conventional PV systems in the space applications due to high efficiency in ultra-low-cost devices, low energy payback time, solution-process and roll-to-roll fabrication, high specific power and intrinsic stability against high energy particles and rays.

The scope of the conference is to gather international experts in new generation photovoltaics such as perovskite, organic PV or tandem between new generation and conventional PV, to have a fresh update on the development in the field and to define new opportunities of new generation PV in space applications. From space applications we consider not only those which are available nowadays such as satellite powering but also new space developments such as extraterrestrial bases, deployable flexible PV arrays, inflatable solar cells etc. The conference would also focus on space relevant tests of new PV technologies as well as the first experimental demonstration on the space environment.

26 June–1 July 2022 International Conference on Cryocrystals and Quantum Crystals

Wroclaw, Poland

Since 1995, Conference on Cryocrystals and Quantum Crystals (CC) has been an important international forum for presenting new results on physics and chemistry of atomic and molecular solids such as rare gas solids, hydrogens, nitrogen, oxygen, methanes, helium isotopes, water ice, etc..

The CC conference is held every two years and since the first meeting in Almaty it is the sixt time that the CC community settles in Poland. Following the initial conference in Kazakhstan next meetings were held in: Polanica Zdrój (1997), Szklarska Poręba (2000), Freising (2002), Wrocław (2004 & 2008), Kharkiv (2006), Chernogolovka (2010), Odessa (2012), Almaty (2014), Turku (2016) and last time in Wojanów (2018).

The scope of CC is wide, including, but not limited to: films, nanoscale systems, low temperature physics, charged species in cryocrystals, spectroscopy of cryocrystals, ultra-low temperature and high-pressure studies, matrix isolation in cryocrystals, ultrafast dynamics in crystals, order-disorder phenomena, technological applications and instrumentation.

29 August–2 September 2022 The 6th International Conference on the Physics of Optical Materials and Devices AND The 5th International Workshop of Persistent and Photostimulable Phosphors (IWPPP-5)

Belgrade, Serbia

The ICOM 2022 Conference brings together scientists and technology users investigating or developing materials for optical applications. The conference will present the state of the art in preparation methods, optical characterization, and usage of optical materials and devices in various photonic fields.

IWPPP-5 (International Workshop on Persistent and Photostimulable Phosphors) will provide a forum for the exchange of knowledge between scientists and users of phosphors in various shapes (from nanoparticles to large ceramics or crystals) presenting persistent luminescence.

The Organizing Committee is inviting you to the 6th International Conference on the Physics of Optical Materials and Devices (ICOM 2022), which is to be held in Belgrade, Serbia, from 29th of August to 2nd of September 2022. The conference is organized by the Society for Science Development of Serbia, IRCP Chimie Paristech (France), and CEMHTI Orléans (France).

IWPPP-5 (International Workshop on Persistent and Photostimulable Phosphors) covers a subfield of luminescence research dealing with persistent phosphors. Persistent luminescence is a specific type of luminescence for which the emission is delayed—for hours or even days—beyond the normal radiative lifetime of the luminescent center. After previous events in 2011, (Ghent, Belgium), 2013 (Guangzhou, China), 2015 (Arlington, USA), 2018 (Beijing, China), the IWPPP-5 meeting is joining the ICOM Conference in 2022 and will be organized by the Society for Science Development of Serbia, the IRCP-CNRS ChimieParisTech, Paris (France), and the CEMHTI Orléans (France).

5–9 September 2022 Photorefractive Photonics and Beyond 2022 (PR'22)


Photorefractive Photonics and Beyond 2022 (PR'22), which began almost 35 years ago in Los Angeles (USA), is the 18th international conference hosting a series of biennial meetings. This year, the conference will take place in Italy, hosted by the University of Padova.

Starting as an international forum devoted to the study of photorefractivity and photorefractive materials, in recent years, the focus of the conference has broadened to include other optical effects and materials and applications relating to this kind of phenomena. Conference topics include: nonlinear light–matter interaction and applications, novel photorefractive and hybrid materials, holography, signal processing and photonics, fundamentals and novel applications of charge and exciton generation and transport, and optical analogues of complex phenomena.

This year’s conference aims to foster collaboration among a wide range of research areas sharing several aspects, such as the fundamental physics, the basic phenomena besides light­–matter interaction, or possible fabrication methods and applications, in order to foster cross-fertilization and stimulate new ways to exploit the light-driven phenomena, which, at a fundamental level, trigger photorefractivity.

26–28 October 2022 3-days International Conference on Materials Science

Verona, Italy

The scope of the conference is to bring together scientists from different areas of Materials Science, physicists, chemists, engineers, with the opportunity to present the state-of-the-art of their research and discuss the latest trends in the field.

The conference's topics are related to all aspects of scientific research of advanced and functional materials, such as nanomaterials, electronic and photonic materials (semiconductors, dielectrics, liquid crystals, ionic solids), ferroelectric and piezoelectric materials, ferromagnetics, multiferroics, thin-films and coatings, metals/alloys and composites, glasses, catalytic materials, polymers, energy materials, bio- and organic materials, including both experimental and theoretical aspects.
