Doped semiconductor nanocrystals are exciting emerging materials. Very high carrier densities lead to localized surface plasmon resonances
in the near infrared. Examples are copper chalcogenides, where doping occurs via vacancy formation, and metal oxides (MOs) that show plasmonic
response due to impurity doping. Excitingly, both materials display post synthetic carrier density and LSPR tunability over a broad spectral range.
Combined with layered two dimensional materials exciting manipulation options appear where the plasmon-exciton coupling or ‘hot’ carrier extraction
enables local photo luminescence manipulation or tracking of local currents in a graphene based nano device. This active control over the LSPR
allows active switching of the strength of coupling, useful also for the study of exciton-plasmon, plasmon-plasmon coupling, or plasmon induced
‘hot’ carrier extraction in nano-heterostructures. Ultralow doping allows the study of quantum plasmonics. Ultrafast photodoping, optical switching,
active light manipulation or tunable NIR photon detection are additional exciting applications.
While fundamental questions regarding the structure-properties relationship remain open to date the library of materials with such properties is
enormous and not yet exhausted.
The Action StableNextSol aims to create a highly interdisciplinary network of academic and industry researchers to study the
degradation mechanisms occurring in state-of-the-art OPVs, based on the use of complementary analytical techniques. The Action seeks to
integrate and generate fundamental knowledge and expertise to foster disruptive innovations targeted to mitigate device failure, and aims
to develop new concepts for OPVs that are more stable and reach lifetimes longer than 20 years.
The reason for the action is the crucial need to advance in the commercialization of OPVs and to strength the industrial European OPV sector such that
this technology can fulfill its potential and supply clean electricity on a global scale.
ANSOLE is a platform of exchange among various stakeholders who are all devoted to promote in a concerted
way the use of various renewable energy forms to address the acute energy problem in Africa while preserving and protecting the environment.
