STiBNite 2nd Summer School in Vienna

We are excited to announce the 2nd STiBNite Summer School, organized together with VIT project, “Self-assembled Organic Materials”. It will be held on the 6th and 7th of July, and can be followed online. Speakers include Prof. Tim Swager (MIT), Prof. Takuji Hatakeyama (Kyoto University), and many more. Find all details (and the link to follow the talks) on the program of the school:

ESR 12 Veronika: Photoluminescence

ESR 12 Veronika Kost (UNITS) explains the basics of photoluminescence on this short video. Veronika is working on the synthesis of luminescent Boron and Nitrogen doped Graphene Quantum Dots. Part of Veronika’s research consists in the study of their photoluminescent behaviour.

Merging Biology and Photovoltaics: How Nature Helps Sun-Catching

In this review, STiBNite ESR Luca Cavinato (TUM) presents an extensive overview of emerging bio-derived materials suitable for organic solar cells, dye-sensitized solar cells and perovskite solar cells. Their production, handling, characterization, and implementation as bio-hybrid components, such as substrates, electrodes, photoactive layers, carrier transporters, light-trapping layers and sealant films, are critically discussed.
