We are proud to announce the workshop, “Electron Transport in Nanocrystal Assemblies” (ETNCA-2013) co-sponsored by the William I. Fine Theoretical Physics Institute (FTPI) and the Nanoparticle Based Materials group of the Material Research Science and Engineering Center at the University of Minnesota. This exciting event will be held in Minneapolis from Friday, June 14, to Sunday, June 16, 2013.

The recent progress in the creation of conducting media made of periodic arrays of semiconductor nanocrystals and quantum dot nanocrystal solids has drawn a great deal of attention. These nanocrystal structures are emerging as a new class of solution-processable materials for low-cost, flexible, thin-film electronics. Still, the mechanism of electron transport of these structures is not understood.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together the leading experts, faculty, and young researchers of engineering departments across the University working in this field. To this end we expect to have around 12 talks of 40 minutes over the 2.5 days along with significant time dedicated to discussions and an extensive poster session.

Participation in the event is by invitation only. We welcome participation of graduate students. Please contact us with any questions by email at etnca2013 (at)
