ABSTRACT SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Aug. 19th
I am organizing a symposium during the ACS Southwest Regional and Rocky Mountain Regional Meeting. The title of the symposium is:
Light for energy: photonic and thermal nanotechnology
This symposium will focus on how light can be utilized as energy source in multiple ways thanks to nanotechnology. Topics will range from LEDs to solar cells to solar desalination and more. If you are interested, see more info here:

Look at our latest work on solar desalination! We experimentally and theoretically show how the same amount of solar power can be used more efficiently for desalination.
Solar thermal desalination as a nonlinear optical process –
Have a look to our recent paper where we show how reshaping of metallic nanoparticles happens at lower power when exciting at interband wavelengths, despite the lower absorption cross section!
Interband Transitions Are More Efficient Than Plasmonic Excitation in the Ultrafast Melting of Electromagnetically Coupled Au Nanoparticles – J. Phys. Chem. C20191232716943-16950
On May 9th 2019 at 2PM EDT, I am going to present the modeling of Nanophotonics Enabled Solar Membrane Distillation (NESMD) during an IEEE webinar sponsored by COMSOL.
