Stéphane cros at ISOPHOS 2023

5th edition of the International School on Hybrid and Organic Photovoltaics

September  4-8, 2023

The University of Rome Tor Vergata played host to the 15th edition of the International School on Hybrid and Organic Photovoltaics (ISOPHOS) from September 4th to 8th, 2023, in the picturesque region of Tuscany, Italy. This prestigious event brought together experts and enthusiasts to delve into the latest breakthroughs in organic and hybrid photovoltaic devices, offering comprehensive insights into diverse technologies. The topics covered spanned a wide spectrum, encompassing small molecules, polymers, perovskites, dye-sensitized solar cells, and the cutting-edge applications of graphene and other 2D materials in the realm of energy.

The distinguished gathering included a lecture by Stéphane Cros, representing Commissariat à l’Énergie Atomique et aux Énergies Alternatives (CEA). His presentation, titled “Perovskite PV: From Intrinsic Stability to Encapsulation Challenges,” provided valuable perspectives on the intrinsic stability of perovskite photovoltaics and the challenges associated with their encapsulation.

This immersive event not only fostered an exchange of knowledge among participants but also served as a platform for exploring the future trajectories of hybrid and organic photovoltaic technologies. The idyllic setting of Tuscany added an inspiring backdrop to the intellectual discussions, making this year’s edition of ISOPHOS a memorable and enriching experience for all attendees.
