Call for oral abstracts deadline – 20 July 2012
Photo-initiated quantum molecular dynamics is not only core fundamental science, it has potentially wide impact. We are now challenged to develop such a detailed understanding of energy flow in molecules, following the absorption of a photon, that we can begin to develop the knowledge and tools to control photochemistry.
Photo-initiated Quantum Molecular Dynamics: Faraday Discussion 163 will focus on the following themes:
- Single molecules: photochemistry and photophysics in isolated molecular systems
- Extended systems: photochemistry and photophysics of chromophores in proteins,
- solution or clusters
- Controlling molecular dynamics: controlling photochemistry using sequences of light
- pulses, shaped light pulses or bond selection prior to photoexcitation
- Applications of molecular dynamics to global challenges: photovoltaic cells, photodynamic
- therapy, imaging.
We do hope you will take the opportunity to join this Discussion where you will be able to hear excellent speakers, including:
- Albert Stolow, Queen’s University, Canada
- Robert W Field, MIT, USA
- Wolfgang Domcke, TU München, Germany
- Eberhard Riedle, LMU München, Germany
- Ursula Rothlisberger, EPFL, Switzerland
- Jennifer Herek, University of Twente, Netherlands
- Phil Bucksbaum, Stanford University, USA
- Greg Scholes, University of Toronto, Canada
- Joachim Burgdörfer, Vienna University of Technology, Austria
- Graham Fleming, UC Berkeley, USA
In addition you will be able to take advantage of networking with other delegates with interest and experience in photo-initiated quantum molecular dynamics, at both the interactive poster sessions and the conference dinner.
Professor Helen Fielding and the rest of the Scientific Committee look forward to welcoming you and your colleagues to Nottingham in April 2013.
