Hybrid and Organic Photovoltaics Conference

HOPV is an established scientific conference for the presentation and discussion of advances in hybrid and organic photovoltaics. Topics include:

  • Material synthesis and processing
  • Device architecture and optimisation
  • Functional and structural characterisation
  • Material and device modelling
  • Material and device stability
  • Scale up and commercial development
  • Related applications, including carrier multiplication, tandem devices and solar to fuels

Over the three main conference days (Wednesday to Friday), the event will include general presentations in the morning, followed by parallel sessions each afternoon, on more specialist themes. There will also be an exhibition and poster sessions with wine in the evening, and a social dinner on Friday to close the conference.

A full programme and schedule, along with details of talks from invited speakers, is available on the HOPV16 website.

HOPV16 Venue

HOPV16 will be hosted by Swansea University. Swansea is a key centre for the development of hybrid and organic photovoltaic technologies. The region is home to GCell Ltd, a world leader in the commercialisation of DSSC’s, as well as Swansea University’s £50m SPECIFIC Integrated Knowledge Centre, which targets the scaling up and demonstration of printed PV technology.

Workshop: Printing and Fabrication of 3rd Generation Photovoltaics, in particular Perovskite Solar Cells

At the start of the conference on Tuesday 28th June at Swansea University, there will be a workshop about printing and fabricating third generation photovoltaics, focussing on perovskite. The workshop will cover printing processes for depositing materials and heat treating methods.

The workshop will include a “Laboratory device making” parallel activity for participants who are new to perovskite and would like to discover more about the fundamentals of device fabrication. Participants will construct a simple perovskite device during the event.

The day will run from 8am until 5:30pm. Places are limited, and can be reserved when you register for the conference. More details, including a programme, are available on the HOPV16 website.
