Energy and environment are crucial for the sustainable development of human society. Many processes in energy and environment fields rely on the interactions of liquid, light and other matters in constrained spaces and are actually optofluidic systems. Good examples include natural photosynthesis in plants, photocatalytic water treatment and solar thermal distillation. This symposium aims to call on the leading researchers that utilize the optofluidic platform to study the environmental and energy issues. The topics include but are not limits to:

  • Energy Conversion Physics and Devices
  • Energy Harvesting Devices and Systems
  • Photocatalysis
  • Artificial photosynthesis
  • Water splitting
  • Solar thermal process and Solar cells
  • Fuel Cells and micro Reactors
  • Micro flow sensors
  • Self-powered opto-fluidics devices
  • Energy Storage
  • Engineered Materials
  • Measurement and Test Issues
