The focus of Symposium ED6 was on the science and engineering of quantum confined nanostructures for various key applications including solar cells, photodetectors, functional conductors, light-emitting devices and bio-integrated electronics. The intent was to present recent insights and future ideas for realizing quantum confinement in emerging materials systems such as organic semiconductors and perovskites, as well as in classic inorganic II-VI and III-V systems. Applications were oriented towards optoelectronic devices which benefit from utilizing quantum-confined states. Specifically, the symposium covered nanostructures including 0-D quantum dots nano-rods, nano-wires and related 1-D nanostructures as well as 2-D systems with a major focus on solution-based emerging materials. By addressing both fundamental science and engineering applications, the symposium had a strong conceptual overlap with both the Physical Sciences Directorate and Engineering Sciences Directorate of the ARO. Symposium ED6 spanned 18-21 April, 2017 offering more than 114 peer-reviewed scientific contributions, among them 14 invited presentations 30 minute talks, 60 contributed oral presentations and 40 poster presentations.
