International Conference on Condensed Matter Photo-Physics 2020

ICAMP'20 is held in a split style, iCAMP’20 in summer and iCAMP’20 in winter. The former is an online conference and the latter meet-together conference. The meet-together conference will be held at a hotel Nen-Rin-Bou Takagamine Northern Kyoto which is located in a zone of fill in culture.

...Question (Piotr Petelenz, Prof. June 25): As follows from the recent comprehensive overview [A.C. Berends et al., J. Phys. Chem. Lett. 2019, 10, 1600], CuInS2 is an electrically extremely flexible semiconductor. Its surface, and even its bulk electrical properties, sensitively depend on the surrounding medium. Is the choice of poly (diallyldimethylammonium) chloride for embedding the CIS quantum dots targeted for some specific application? Or is the environment it provides expected to give a cue for some fundamental question concerning CIS bulk physics? Or is this paper just a synthesis-focused reconnaissance study? I would be grateful for some guidance in this regard.

...Comments (Tadashi Itoh, Prof. June 25): Concerning the paper “Evaluation of photoluminescence properties of CdTe quantum dot superlattices”, I would like to send you my comments as follows: 1) Congratulation for your success in fabricating CdTe QDSLs by utilizing the amide bonds between NACs which are the ligands attached to single QDs. It may be an excellent method for making regular QD arrays. 2) You have successfully observed that the PLE peak energy does not change even though the detection energy is different, contrary to the case of the QD solution with size distribution where the PLE peak energy does change when the detection energy is different. 3) I think that the above phenomenon is a clear evidence of electronic relaxation among QDs in the QD arrays. There may be two kinds of interpretation for this phenomenon: one is the electronic resonance transfer by the formation of minbands in the QDSLs and the other is the phonon-assisted rapid energy transfer toward those QDs with larger sizes, caused by the overlapping of electronic excited states among adjacent QDs. 4) I imagine that the former interpretation might be more probable because you have observed the periodic structural order of the QD arrays by means of x-ray diffraction measurement. However, the diffraction pattern might appear even if there is only a partial regularity inside the QD arrays. In order to confirm the formation of minibands, it may be desirable to get further experimental evidence such that the miniband energy width and/or the bandedge energy depends on the superlattice constant (that is the distance between adjacent QDs), for example, by changing the length of the ligand. 5) Anyway, I enjoyed reading the paper very much. I hope your further success in the near future.

... Reply (June 27): Thank you for your informative comments on the manuscript. We really appreciate it. Currently, we are fabricating samples with varying ordered structure scales and investigating the relationship between ordered structure scales and miniband formation. Through this research, we are trying to elucidate the phenomena occurring in the ordered structure.

... Question (Yoshitaka Oeda, Dr. May 20): Your manuscript is very interesting. Unfortunately, however, I do not understand a word "refix" in your manuscript.

... Reply (May 21): Refix means to reabsorb. Carbon dioxide was originally removed from the atmosphere by photosynthetic activity and then put back into the air by burning fossile fuels.

Based on ICC support, "Excellent Presentation Prize" for graduate student participants is set up. Laureate name will be announced late September. 'Excellent Presentaion award' was merged into this Prize.

Scope: This conference has been planned to discuss topics across all fields of Condensed Matter Photo-Physics. To promote our research activities further we should bring in young researchers with wide-ranging views and pioneering spirits. Looking back at the history of condensed matter photo-physics over the past 100 years, new concepts and ideas were often triggered by people working on the outskirts of traditional research realms. Therefore, we wish to take in fresh blood.

Owing to COVID-19 pandemic, iCAMP’20 will be held under a novel design; iCAMP’20 in summer does not include any meeting where participants get together, that is, we will not have oral and poster sessions there.

Nevertheless, we will keep our policy to encourage young participants to present their papers in good shape to distribute their new results. This new presentation style will probably press young participants to enforce additional effort to polish their manuscripts. We hope they overcome this severe barrier and obtain higher educational capacity.
