Physical Chemistry of Interfaces and Nanomaterials XIII

Date So, 17.08.2014 - Do, 21.08.2014
Time All day
Location San Diego Convention Center, California, United States
Program Interfaces play an essential role in many (bio-)chemical processes, ranging from solar energy conversion via biological membrane processes to catalysis. Recent developments in nanomaterials highlight the importance of surfaces and interfaces in quantum confined systems. The detailed study of the physics and physical chemistry at interfaces and in nanomaterials requires the development of experimental and theoretical techniques of ever increasing complexity. New forms of microscopy, non-linear spectroscopy and scanned-probe techniques continue to emerge in conjunction with sophisticated theoretical methods capable of treating correlated systems of increasing size and over timescales of femto- to nanoseconds.

The intent of this conference is to bring together an interdisciplinary group of scientists (from academia, industry and government laboratories) who study fundamental processes at interfaces and in nanomaterials.

For the 2014 call, the scope of the conference will focus on the following topics:

charge separation at organic, inorganic, hybrid and biological interfaces
physical processes in solar energy conversion at interfaces and on nanostructures
photophysics of novel perovskite-based nanomaterials
physical understanding of biological systems and interfacial processes
advanced microscopy techniques for biophysics
single particle tracking of (bio-)nanomaterials
confinement effects in nanostructures and nanowires
carrier transport in complex nanostructured systems
emerging experimental tools for biophysics
novel spectroscopic tools to probe kinetics of energy and charge transfer at interfaces
advances in modeling of electronic processes in nanomaterials and at interfaces.

Joint sessions will be organized with other conferences, such as “Organic Photovoltaics XV” and "Organic Field-Effect Transistors XIII".
