We are proud to announce the workshop, “Charge and Energy Transport in Nanocrystal Assemblies” (CETNA-2017) organized by the William I. Fine Theoretical Physics Institute, and cosponsored by the Material Research Science and Engineering Center at the University of Minnesota. The conference will start on the morning of Thursday, May 4th, 2017 and end at 1:00 PM on Saturday, May 6th, 2017.

The recent progress in the creation of conducting media made of arrays of semiconductor nanocrystals and quantum dot nanocrystal solids has drawn a great deal of attention. These nanocrystal structures are emerging as materials for low-cost, flexible, thin-film electronics. Still, the mechanism of electron and exciton transport of these structures is not understood. The goal of this workshop is to bring together leading experts in this field.

Participation in the event is by invitation only. We welcome participation of graduate students and post docs. Please contact us with any questions by email at (CETNA2017 @
