Near-IR Emitters and Quantum Light Sources: Computation, Modeling, and Experiment
07/19/2021 - 07/23/2021
Nanomaterials, such as nano-sized inorganic and organic semiconductors, are becoming the focus of scientific research. Examples of nanomaterial applications abound, ranging from light-emitting diodes, to photoenergy conversion, to room-temperature magnetism, and to biological optical probes. These materials have unique electronic structures that cannot be simply defined as conventional continuum (as in a periodic system), nor discrete quantum levels (as in a molecule). In addition, complicated processes that occur at the surfaces and interfaces of these nanomaterials upon photoexcitation poses high demands on the experimental techniques used to characterize nanoscale systems. Theory and computational modeling could provide useful interpretations of experimental data and a better understanding of the material's properties at the atomistic level, while development of validated theoretical predictions could guide new experimental efforts.
The symposium aims to bring together theoreticians and experimentalists for a timely discussion of modern developments, applications, and challenges in nanomaterial research from both theoretical and experimental perspectives.
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, 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.
Workshop Price: $ 390.00
Early Bird Lodging Discount Available Until: 01/15/2021
A $100.00 discount is applied to your lodging cost when you register before 01/15/2021.
All cancelled registrations are subject to a $100 Cancellation Fee. TSRC can only guarantee a refund for the balance of fees and lodging charges paid when a refund is requested prior to the Cancellation Deadline that is specific to each workshop, which in this case is 06/19/2021. TSRC always recommends that participants purchase travel insurance to protect against unforeseen, last-minute travel plan changes.
