Workshop Details
Quantum Dynamics and Spectroscopy in Condensed-Phase Materials and Bio-Systems
06/25/2019 - 06/29/2019
Meeting Description:

Due to recent advances in ultrafast optical spectroscopies, quantum processes in molecular systems, ranging from small molecules to biological systems and functional materials, are amenable to study in unprecedented detail. This opens a unique opportunity of interaction between experiment and theory, to achieve an improved understanding of nonequilibrium phenomena guided by the interplay of quantum coherence and environmental effects. Against this background, the goal of this workshop is to bring together a group of leading spectroscopists and theorists, to address state-of-the-art methodology in the study of elementary energy and charge transfer phenomena in condensed phases and spatially extended systems. Some focus will be placed upon the scope, limitations, and novel developments in (i) nonlinear optical techniques and (ii) quantum and mixed quantum-classical simulation techniques as applied to condensed-phase systems, biological chromophores and light-harvesting systems, and nanostructured materials.


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.

The registration price includes five breakfasts, three lunches, a BBQ picnic, and a group dinner at Floradora restaurant.

Registration fee includes two lunches.

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.
