The International Union of Crystallography (IUCr)‘s Sagamore XIX – 2018: Conference on Quantum Crystallography

8 July 2018 14:00 - 13 July 2018 13:00, Halifax, Canada


Introduction
List of topics:
Experimentally-constrained wavefunctions and density matrices.
Progress in DFT and theoretical methods for solids within quantum crystallography.
Topological approaches: Bader’s quantum theory of atoms in molecules (QTAIM), ELF, NCI, etc.
Laser-molecule/crystal interaction.
Pump-probe approaches, time-resolved X-ray diffraction.
Experimental probes for charge, spin, and momentum densities, bright sources, Auger, etc.
Functional materials.
Nanoscale: Structure, dynamics and densities.
Electronic properties of nanomaterials.
Charge, spin, and momentum densities in chemical and crystal engineering.
Materials under extreme conditions: High pressure, strong external electric fields, intense laser fields etc.
Quantum crystallography in the life sciences.
Round table discussion on defining Quantum Crystallography, its future, central problems, and contributions to the intersecting spheres of crystallography and quantum chemistry and physics.
