Due to the cancellation of many scientific conferences, the AUCAOS committee is pleased to announce an online seminar series. We intend to run seminars on the first Wednesday of every month until normal conferences can resume.
Date: Wednesday 2 December 2020
1pm in QLD
2pm in NSW, ACT, Vic and Tas
11am in WA
12:30pm in NT
1:30pm in SA
4pm in New Zealand

Each talk is 20 minutes duration followed by approximately 5 minutes for questions and discussion.
|Time (QLD time, adjust as needed):||Presentation:|
|1:00 – 1:25pm||Non-Toxic Hybrid Inorganic-Organic Chromophores for the Advancement of Luminescent Solar Concentrators
Luminescent solar concentrators (LSCs) consist of a waveguide medium containing light harvesting chromophores of an inorganic or organic nature. These chromophores absorb incoming light, and radiatively re-emit light, which is propagated to the edges of the LSC by the waveguide. The concentrated light at the edges is then collected by coupled solar cells.
|1:25 – 1:50pm||Magnetic field effect on UC-TTA
Solar light contains many wavelengths, but solar cells cannot absorb all those wavelengths. In fact, those photons which do not have enough energy to be absorb by the band gap will be wasted. One of the strategies that have been used until now in terms of using low energy photons is Triplet-Triplet Annhilation upconversion (UC-TTA). In this process two low energy photons will convert to a higher energy photon.
|1:50 – 2:00pm||Open discussion|
During the seminar:
- Please keep your microphone muted unless you are speaking. This is to reduce the background noise and avoid disrupting the presenter.
- You will be automatically muted when you join the virtual meeting room. To speak, you will need to unmute yourself by using the audio controls in the lower left of the Zoom window.
- If you have not used Zoom before, then it is recommended that you join 5 minutes before the starting time to ensure that you have your software set up correctly.
Please be aware that the talks will be recorded and posted on the AUCAOS website.

Call for abstracts
Seminars are held on the first Wednesday of each month.
In the spirit of building a community in these challenging times, you are encouraged to give a talk. Do you have a talk that you would have given at a conference that was cancelled? Please consider adapting that talk for this format.
