The IEEE Journal of Photovoltaics (JPV) is a peer-reviewed, archival publication reporting original and significant research results that advance the field of photovoltaics (PV). The PV field is diverse in its science base ranging from semiconductor and PV device physics to optics and the materials sciences. The journal publishes articles that connect this science base to PV science and technology. The intent is to publish original research results that are of primary interest to the photovoltaic specialist.

The scope of the IEEE J. Photovoltaics incorporates: fundamentals and new concepts of PV conversion, including those based on nanostructured materials, low-dimensional physics, multiple charge generation, up/down converters, thermophotovoltaics, hot-carrier effects, plasmonics, metamorphic materials, luminescent concentrators, and rectennas; Si-based PV, including new cell designs, crystalline and non-crystalline Si, passivation, characterization and Si crystal growth; polycrystalline, amorphous and crystalline thin-film solar cell materials, including PV structures and solar cells based on II-VI, chalcopyrite, Si and other thin film absorbers; III-V PV materials, heterostructures, multijunction devices and concentrator PV; optics for light trapping, reflection control and concentration; organic PV including polymer, hybrid and dye sensitized solar cells; space PV including cell materials and PV devices, defects and reliability, environmental effects and protective materials; PV modeling and characterization methods; and other aspects of PV, including modules, power conditioning, inverters, balance-of-systems components, monitoring, analyses and simulations, and supporting PV module standards and measurements.

  • Considering the present circumstances related to COVID-19, the Conference Committee of the IEEE Nanotechnology Council and the Montreal organizers of the 20th IEEE International Conference on Nanotechnology 2020 (IEEE NANO 2020) decided jointly that IEEE NANO 2020 must convert to an all-virtual format from July 29th to 31st of 2020. See website 2020.ieeenano.org.
  • The physical NANO 2020 conference in Montreal is now moved to 2021 and becomes the 21st IEEE International Conference on Nanotechnology (IEEE NANO 2021) to be held July 28-30, 2021. Abstracts previously submitted to IEEE NANO 2020 (Montreal) and not presented at the virtual NANO 2020 will be transferred to the NANO 2021, for which an additional call for papers will be open Nov 15th, 2020 – Jan 31st, 2021. Look for further information on their website at 2021.ieeenano.org, which will go live according to tradition at the conclusion of NANO 2020.

The NTC TA are currently developed in 15 TCs, covering almost all scientific areas of interest to the NTC. The role of each NTC TC is to serve as a focal point for research in a specific area. The actions undertaken by each NTC TC are developed by its Members under the leadership of Chair/Co-Chairs. Each NTC TC is created for a 4-year term and can be renewed by the NTC AdCom after a progress report and evaluation. Recently the Chairs of two of the NTC TCs have been reformed. For a full list of NTC’s 2020 Technical Committee, click here.

It is our pleasure to announce the new Chair of the NTC TC2 Nano-Biomedicine, Haibo Yu. On behalf of the NTC TAC, I would like to thank him for taking this responsibility and wish him a very successful leadership.
