Workshop Details
Quantum Transport in Nanoscale Molecular Systems
07/08/2013 - 07/12/2013
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.

Accurate and reproducible experimental measurements of transport properties of single molecules in nanojuctions have been reported. The experiments have revealed a wealth of interesting physical transport phenomena such as Coulomb blockade, Kondo effects, vibronic effects and local heating, 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.

While previous workshops concentrated on theoretical aspects and methods, the focus of this year meeting is the interactive dialog between experimentalists and theoretical researchers working in the field of non-equilibrium charge and energy transport processes in nanoscale molecular architectures. Topics for discussion include quantum interference and decoherence in molecular junctions, spin effects, noise, vibronic and thermoelectric effects, and time-dependent transport.
