HoW exciting! Workshop on excitations in solids
HoW exciting! 2018 consists of two closely related events, a hands-on tutorial and an international workshop about excitations in solids.

Hands-on tutorial on excitations in solids (July 31 - August 5, 2018)

This tutorial offers young scientists the opportunity to practice with hands-on exercises with the software package exciting. These exercises will guide participants through the topics addressed in the subsequent workshop: From the basics of DFT to advanced topics, such as time-dependent DFT and many-body perturbation theory, as well as to their applications to real materials.

Workshop on excitations in solids (August 6-9, 2018)

Excitations in solids are among the most exciting phenomena in condensed-matter physics. In this context, the electronic-structure approach within density-functional theory (DFT) is the first level in a hierarchical set of models which are needed to quantitatively describe and understand these phenomena in real materials. The relationship of the different computational techniques and domains of applicability is still a challenging task. At the same time, advances in theoretical and computational methods go hand in hand with the progresses in experimental techniques.

The Workshop on Advanced Spectroscopy of Organic Materials for Electronic Applications
The series of biannual ASOMEA-workshops began in 2001 as a meeting of Swedish and Japanese scientists working with spectroscopic techniques and theoretical modeling for a better understanding of organic electronic materials and related interfaces. Around 50-60 participants primarily from Sweden, Japan, and Germany but also from other countries across the world are expected.

Scientific Topics:
  • Spectroscopy of Molecular Liquids, Solids and Interfaces
  • UV and X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopies/Microscopies
  • X-ray Absorption and Emission Spectroscopies
  • Time-resolved/Multi-colored Spectroscopies
  • Ambient Pressure/Operando Spectroscopies
  • and more
Zeit: 23.-26. Oktober 2018  


Ort: Schluchsee, Germany
