SCTE2024 - 23rd International Conference on Solid Compounds of Transition Elements

17 June 2024 08:00 - 21 June 2024 15:00, Prague, Czech Republic

The SCTE conferences allow every 2 years to report new discoveries in chemistry and solid state physics of compounds and materials based on d and f electron elements. Several axes are discussed such as the crystal structure, the chemical bond as well as the various and varied physical properties (magnetic, transport and spectroscopic) of various families of intermetallics (and derivatives such as: hydrides, borides, carbides, silicides, pnictides, chalcogenides, oxides, halides).

Preliminary Topics:
  1. Synthesis and characterization of solid compounds of d– or f -elements
  2. Thermodynamics, phase equilibria, phase transitions
  3. Metastable, amorphous, and nanostructured materials
  4. Cooperative and topological phenomena (magnetism, ferroelectricity, electrical transport including superconductivity, charge density waves, strongly correlated systems, quantum criticality, spectroscopy)
  5. Theory (chemical bonding, electronic structure, phonons, machine learning)
  6. Energy (hydrogen production and storage, fuel cells, thermoelectrics, magnetocalorics, catalysis)
  7. Applications (production, recycling and other industrial processes, nuclear fuel and waste issues)
