The International Conference on Quantum Dots will take place online from 7-11 December 2020 and is co-funded by the DFG clusters of excellence MCQST and e-conversion. The conference will bring together leading researchers and groups from industry working on the fundamental physics, materials, synthesis and applications of Quantum Dots in both experiment and theory.

Conference topics include

  • Fundamentals: ab-initio and effective theories, spin and magnetic phenomena, quantum optics, quantum coherence, as well as novel analytical and spectroscopic methods.
  • Materials: epitaxial & chemically synthesized dots, nanoplatelets, atomically thin 2D materials, layered perovskites and hybrid organic / inorganic QD nanosystems.
  • Applications: quantum information technologies, energy harvesting, light-emission, sensors, detectors and biosciences.
