The Sixth International Workshop on Nanocarbon Photonics and Optoelectronics (NPO2017) has been held on 19-24 March 2017 at Krasnaya Polyana resort, Sochi, Russia in the hotel “Golden Tulip Rosa Khutor”.
Both fundamental and application problems related to the photonic and optoelectronic applications of nanocarbon materials have recently attracted the attention of research community worldwide. The NPO2017 was the sixth workshop in a series of meetings devoted to progress in this field. The Workshop was focused on photonics and optoelectronics of graphene and other two-dimensional materials, topological insulators, carbon nanotubes and nanodiamonds. The NPO2017 was organized on the initiative and with the financial support of the Russian Science Foundation (the project 15-12-30041). The co-founders of the workshop were University of Eastern Finland, A.M. Prokhorov General Physics Institute of Russian Academy of Sciences, M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University and the National Research Nuclear University “MEPhI”.
The Workshop venue was situated in Krasnaya Polyana, the Winter Olympics 2014 snow events cluster located 50 km from Sochi at the Aibga Ridge of the Western Caucasus. The NPO2017 was devoted to advances in the field of nanocarbon photonics and optoelectronics.
The workshop included the invited lectures, oral and poster presentations devoted to different nanocarbon and 2D materials. The presentations was distributed in modules beginning from synthesis and characterization of structural, optical and electronic properties of these materials to their application in photonic and electronic devices.
