Workshop Details
Hierarchical Assembly and Function of Organic and Hybrid Materials
07/11/2023 - 07/15/2023
Meeting Description:

While there exist many hard-and-fast principles to manipulate at the atomic-scale the electronic, redox, and optical characteristics of π-conjugated molecules and polymers, the translation of these molecular characteristics to the macroscopic materials properties that are critical to the functionality of organic semiconductors remains highly Edisonian. Recent experimental and theoretical efforts have brought forward some under underpinnings to direct molecular-scale and microscopic order in organic semiconductors through molecular and process design, though these concepts are not robust and often fall short across materials classes. This workshop will bring together synthetic chemists, materials scientists and engineers, process design specialists, device engineers, and theoreticians to chart the next steps forward in the design of new generations of organic semiconductors with a view towards controlling assembly.


IMPORTANT: Participants should be aware that this workshop runs Tuesday through Saturday. Festival lodging rates will be in effect on the night of Sunday, July 9th. Discounted lodging rates start on Monday, July 10th. If you are planning to arrive on Sunday, you can stay at the Hampton Inn (970-547-4120) next to the airport and come up to Telluride first thing on Monday. You will receive a discount at the Hampton Inn by saying you are a TSRC scientist.

We wish to ensure an intimate workshop setting, with no more than 20 to 25 participants. If you are interested in attending, but have not received an invitation, please contact the workshop organizer before registering.

Telluride Science is about expanding the frontiers of science, exploring new ideas, and building collaborations. The workshop schedule will allow for substantial unstructured time for participants to talk and think. All participants are expected to stay for the entire duration of the workshop. Scientists are encouraged to consider bringing family or friends. Telluride offers a number of options for children's camps (including Telluride Academy, Aha School for the Arts, and Pinhead Institute). There is more information on childcare, camps, and family activities on Telluride Science's website. Feel free to contact Telluride Science's staff to help with any planning and/or coordinating care.
