Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

Solidstate Lighting, EU visionon photovoltaic, Research Funding by the, Swedish Research Council, Nanowires for solar cell applications-I, Nanowires for solar cell applications-II,  Basics of Plasmonics, Plasmonics for energy saving, Colloidal Q-dotsolar cells, Solid state solar cells, "Nano photonic Solutions for, High-Quality White LEDs", Organic materials for photovoltaic, Organic light emitting diodes, Solar business-from research to enterprise

Intended learning outcomes

The aim of the winterschool is to give an overview of the ongoing research on photonics relevant to energy needs of today and tomorrow. The student who attends this work shop will comprehend the importance of photonics for energy research but also will be inspired to find interdisciplinary approach and novel routes to use photonics and optics for energy solutions.

Course Disposition

Besides the above academic lectures, EU vision on photovoltaic will be presented by are presentative from EU commissionin Brussels and Commercial exploitation of research results will be presented by a researcher/entrepreneur from Uppsala. We also take this opportunity to provide the students an exposure to the Swedish research funding system, which will be done by a representative from Swedish Research Council.

EU visionon photovoltaic, Solarbusiness-from research to enterprise, Research Funding by the, Swedish Research Council, To activate the participants a panel discussionon "How much can photonics do for future energy economics?" is also arranged.
