Paper Numbering: Proceedings of SPIE follow an e-First publication model, with papers published first online and then in print and on CD-ROM. Papers are published as they are submitted and meet publication criteria. A unique, consistent, permanent citation identifier (CID) number is assigned to each article at the time of the first publication. Utilization of CIDs allows articles to be fully citable as soon as they are published online, and connects the same identifier to all online, print, and electronic versions of the publication. SPIE uses a six-digit CID article numbering system in which:

  • The first four digits correspond to the SPIE volume number.

  • The last two digits indicate publication order within the volume using a Base 36 numbering system employing both numerals and letters. These two-number sets start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B … 0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc.

The CID Number appears on each page of the manuscript. The complete citation is used on the first page, and an abbreviated version on subsequent pages. Numbers in the index correspond to the last two digits of the six-digit CID Number.

Author Index

Numbers in the index correspond to the last two digits of the six-digit citation identifier (CID) article numbering system used in Proceedings of SPIE. The first four digits reflect the volume number. Base 36 numbering is employed for the last two digits and indicates the order of articles within the volume. Numbers start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B…0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc.

Interfaces play a key role in the function of a plethora of chemical systems spanning the range from biological membranes, solid state materials, catalysts, all the way to organic bulk heterojunction materials for photovoltaics. The “Physical Chemistry of Interfaces and Nanomaterals” Conference provides a venue for the intermixing of physical chemists, physicists, biophysicists, and chemical engineers that can foster new ideas that can advance each other’s field.

This year’s thirteenth edition of the conference moved along the spirit of previous years including sessions on charge generation at organic interfaces, charge transfer across device interfaces, photophysics of hybrid photovoltaic systems, hybrid and inorganic nanomaterials, and physical understanding of biological systems. Two sessions were dedicated to properties and applications of novel perovskite-based nanomaterials, given the heightened recent interest of the optoelectronics community in these materials, and one session to singlet exciton fission in organic semiconductors. A new feature this year was also the inclusion of sessions dedicated to experimental methods for probing kinetics of energy and charge transfer at interfaces as well as emerging experimental tools for biophysics.

The common interest in organic photovoltaics spurred two joint sessions this year with the “Organic Photovoltaics XV” conference on charge transfer at the organic heterojunction. A real melting pot of experimentalists striving for uncovering the fundamental mechanisms behind device efficiencies, others discovering novel spectroscopic methods to study those interfaces and theoreticians modelling charge generation processes.

Overall, this was an exciting conference with lively discussions and fruitful exchanges of ideas.

We are grateful to SPIE, the Organizing Committee and most of all to the speakers that contributed to the success of this meeting.
