Workshop Details
Emerging Methods in Single Molecule Spectroscopy
06/25/2019 - 06/29/2019
Meeting Description:

As the applications of single-molecule fluorescence continue to expand in biophysics, materials science, and condensed-phase chemical kinetics, there has been a drive to develop new techniques for single- molecule detection and spectroscopy utilizing novel optical interactions. This new generation of techniques expands single-molecule studies with an unprecedented level of chemical detail based on electronic and vibrational spectroscopies and other derived quantities. Techniques discussed will include photothermal contrast and photoinduced force microscopies; surface- and tip-enhanced absorption, fluorescence, and Raman; vibrational-electronic coupling, nanophotonic enhancement, and others. The goal of this workshop is to provide a space for sharing recent method developments and discussions about the advantages, limitations, cross-discipline controls, and potential applications.


IMPORTANT: Participants should note that the workshop runs Tuesday through Saturday. Because of the approaching 4th of July holiday week, discounted lodging rates are not available on Saturday night. If your flight is on Sunday out of Montrose, we recommend having dinner in Telluride on Saturday night and taking Telluride Express to Montrose after dinner. TSRC scientists are eligible for the corporate rate ($119 + tax) at the Hampton Inn (970-547-4120) next to the airport.

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. If you have registered for a meeting you were not invited to, you may be subject to a $100 fee.

TSRC 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 TSRC's website. Feel free to contact TSRC's staff to help with any planning and/or coordinating care.
