342 Nanostructured/Thin Film Photovoltaics I

Tuesday, November 18, 2014: 12:30 PM
International 8 (Marriott Marquis Atlanta)
Thin films and nanostructured materials offer an opportunity to significantly reduce the cost of photovoltaic devices and to capitalize on the unique photophysical properties of novel 0D and 1D materials. This session will highlight recent advances in all aspects of next-generation photovoltaic materials, processing techniques, and device characterization.
