Theory meets experiment: molecular nanoscience and applications

1 - 3 June 2015, London, United Kingdom

This three-day workshop will bring together experimentalists and theorists studying atomic and molecular scales structures on surfaces. The central theme of the workshop is the investigation of molecules on surfaces, and key topics are expected to include:

Individual atoms and molecules – and structures engineered from these – on metals, semiconductors, insulators, and 2D materials;
Manipulation of the electronic and magnetic states of individual atoms and molecules through interactions with surfaces;
Molecular self assembly and molecular surface functionalization;
Molecule-based devices;
Novel imaging techniques (including tunnelling and force microscopies), spectroscopies and time resolved measurements.

One of the central objectives of the meeting is to promote cross-boundary discussions, especially at the experiment/theory and fundamental/applied interfaces. Time will be allocated to facilitate such discussions, including poster sessions and a social event.
