PCCP is pleased to anounce its involvement with iCOMET, the International Conference on Molecular Energy Transfer in Complex Systems: From chemical Dynamics to new Technologies which will be held in Chengdu, China from 11th to 15th October 2015.
The scope of the iCOMET conference
is summarized by observing that knowledge on interactions between atoms and molecules is vital to our understanding of the nanoworld, which includes everything from combustion to molecular biology. Such interactions are best deciphered by studying energy transfer in dynamical processes. This field has developed by studies of energy transfer of small molecules in the gas-phase. Today, we are striving toward understanding of more complex problems like molecular interactions at surfaces, in the condensed phase, biological molecules and technology applications. Our goal is to obtain an atomic scale understanding of dynamical events controlling complex physico-chemical phenomena. The field is characterized by advanced experimental tools and has demonstrated a close connection with highly sophisticated theoretical analysis.
