Workshop Details
Polariton Chemistry and Molecular Cavity Quantum Electrodynamics
06/05/2023 - 06/09/2023
Meeting Description:

Strong interactions between molecules and the quantized radiation field inside an optical cavity creates a set of new photon-matter hybrid states, so-called polariton states. These polariton states have shown to facilitate new chemical reactivities due to their hybridized nature of light and matter. Polariton chemistry thus provides a general new strategy to control chemical reactivity using quantized photon field and provides a new paradigm for enabling chemical transformations that can profoundly impact catalysis, energy production, and the field of chemistry at large.

Polariton chemistry has become a fast-growing community with exciting progress occurring daily. The proposed workshop will bring together experimentalists and theorists with different backgrounds (cavity QED, photochemistry, electronic structure, and quantum dynamics) together for a week of lively scientific discussions, exchanging the most recent scientific discoveries and discussing the most urgent challenges to resolve to move the field forward. We envision that this proposed workshop will become the scientific hub and the flagship conference for polariton chemistry in the world, and significantly benefit the entire community.


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