Pacifichem Symposium on Ultrafast Spectroscopy

Date Do, 17.12.2020 - Fr, 18.12.2020
Location Honolulu, Hawaii, USA
Program The 2020 International Chemical Congress of Pacific Basin Societies (PAC CHEM™), will take place in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA, December 15-20, 2020. Pacifichem 2020 will be the eighth in the series of successful cosponsored scientific conferences of Pacific Basin Chemical Societies. Founded in 1984, these conferences have been held in Honolulu, Hawaii about every five years.

Call for Papers for Pacifichem Symposium on Ultrafast Spectroscopy (December 17-18, 2020). Abstract deadline extended to April 15

Femtosecond lasers, and the time-domain spectroscopies that they enable, have grown steadily in power and sophistication, allowing photoexcited states to be studied in systems of increasing complexity. Today, ultrafast laser pulses are available from the THz to the soft X-ray regions. This symposium will feature experimental and theoretical work on the nature and dynamics of photoexcited states in complex systems such as photoactive biopolymers, photosynthetic systems, organic photopolymers, and self-assembled organic and inorganic nanomaterials. Charting the evolution of excitation energy and photogenerated charges over microscopic time and length scales is a grand challenge of great significance for fields such as energy harvesting and photocatalysis. Topics of interest include exciton dynamics and localization, singlet fission, charge separation, multidimensional spectroscopy, interchromophore coupling, photoinduced proton-coupled electron transfer, and the dynamics of photogenerated carriers and redox equivalents.
