Space debris, more efficient LEDs, and thinner, cheaper solar cells
Date:10/25/2011

WASHINGTON -- Scientists and engineers from around the world will convene in Austin, Texas next week as experts gather to discuss recent advances in optics and photonics -- the branch of physics dealing with the science of light -- affecting renewable energy and environmental research.

Journalists are invited to the Optical Society's (OSA) Optics and Photonics Congress: Renewable Energy & the Environment, which will be held at the Omni Austin Hotel Downtown Nov. 2-3. Four co-located meetings will cover optics for solar energy, solid-state and organic lighting, photovoltaics, and instrumentation for energy and environmental applications . Press registration details are below.

In addition to seven plenary session keynote speakers from institutions such as the U.S. National Renewable Energy Lab and Stanford University, many of the research presentations at the meeting focus on the most cutting-edge discoveries in renewable energy and photonics, including new designs for solar cells and LEDs. Highlighted presentation topics include:

1. Thousands of Sensors to Keep Watch on Earth's Climate
2. Looking for CO2 Leaks
3. Let the Sunshine In
4. Studying Space Debris: NASA Uses Optics to Help Reveal Size, Composition of Space Junk
5. Novel LED Design May Boost Efficiencies
6. 'Inverted Pyramid' Design Makes Thinner Wafers, Cheaper Solar Cells
7. Toward a Simpler White Organic LED Design
8. Improving Efficiency with Photonic Crystal Sandwiches
9. 'Power Droop' Challenges of LEDs for High-power Lighting
10. Plasmonics for Better Light Trapping

1. Thousands of Sensors to Keep Watch on Earth's Climate

Science is only as good as the data on which it is based, the saying goes. To help meet the forecasting challenges of climate-change science, the U.S. National Ecological Observ
