Workshop Details
Electronic and Magnetic Properties of Chiral Structures and their Assemblies
06/28/2010 - 07/02/2010
Meeting Description:

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.
