The goal of this thematic issue is to collect contributions on novel developments and trends in the field of renewable energy conversion using nano- and microscale materials. The key topics will include fundamental aspects of structural and chemical nanoscale characterization, new materials and especially device concepts but may also cover strategies and ideas for future developments in this field. Potential contributions may include, but are not limited to the following topics:

  • New material and device concepts (including metamaterials, organic/hybrid/quantum dot structures, thermoelectrics, various nano- and microscale approaches, advanced device concepts)
  • Light and current management (ranging from photonics, light concentration, and charge carrier collection to interfaces and surfaces)
  • Advanced analytical methods (related to chemical composition, structural characterization, optoelectronic properties)

Additional articles on this topic will be published here soon.
