Workshop Details
Quantum Transport in Nanoscale Molecular Systems (VIRTUAL)
07/26/2021 - 07/30/2021
Meeting Description:

The workshop Quantum Transport in Nanoscale Molecular Systems is a bi-annual meeting devoted to understanding charge and energy transport processes and phenomena in nanoscale molecular systems, in particular, molecular junctions. These systems combine the possibility to study fundamental aspects of nonequilibrium many-body quantum physics at the nanoscale with the perspective for technological applications in nanoelectronic devices.

Experimental measurements of transport properties of single molecules in nanojuctions have revealed a wealth of interesting physical transport phenomena such as Coulomb, Franck-Condon and spin blockade, Kondo effects, quantum interference and decoherence, vibronic effects and local heating, transistor or diode-like behavior, strong current fluctuations, as well as switching and hysteresis. The understanding of the fundamental mechanisms of quantum transport in single molecule junctions as well as the interpretation of these experimental observations requires the development of theoretical methods for the description of non-equilibrium interacting many-body systems at the molecular scale.

The meeting aims at an interactive dialog between experimental and theoretical researchers working in the field of nonequilibrium charge and energy transport processes in nanoscale molecular architectures. Focus topics of this year’s meeting include (but are not limited to) spin effects in molecular junctions, electroluminescence and nanoplasmonics, noise, vibronic and thermoelectric effects, quantum interference and decoherence, as well as nonstationary time-dependent transport.


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.
