Organized molecular systems are important components in biology and are the building blocks of nanodevices. Much attention is given to the structural properties of these systems, but much less is known on the electromagnetic properties that emerge from the cooperative effects resulting from organizing molecular systems. The study of these cooperative electronic and magnetic properties requires collaboration among scientists coming from different disciplines, biology on one hand and mesoscopic physics and spintronics on the other, with organic, theoretical and physical chemists. The workshop will bring scientists from these different communities and disciplines together, and provide a forum to encourage communication and collaboration on this important and newly emerging subject. Specific topic for discussion are likely to include: spectroscopic signatures of chirality and of chiral imprints, spin-polarized photoemission from dissymmetric films, spin selective photochemistry of chiral species, molecular spintronics, manifestations of chirality in the properties of surfaces, films and interfaces.
The registration fee includes breakfast on each workshop day. There is also a catered picnic on Wednesday night.
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.
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, Ah Haa School for the Arts, and Pinhead Institute). There is more information on childcare, camps, and family activities on TSRC's website at https://www.telluridescience.org/travel/families. Please contact Cindy Fusting at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
