Symposium EL10-Dynamical Molecular-Scale Opto-Electronic Devices

This symposium will cover current and emerging developments in molecular electronic devices. Charge transport across molecules is ubiquitous in countless scientific disciplines including catalysis, biology, sensing and nanoelectronics, therefore understanding the mechanisms of charge transport across molecules and molecule-electrode interfaces is extremely important. The overall aim is to address fundamental questions regarding the mechanisms of charge transport, and how this knowledge can be applied to recent developments in new and upcoming areas including neuromorphic computing, single-molecule sensing, or biomolecular electronics. The first part of the symposium will focus on recent progress in understanding the fundamental aspects of charge transport. Topics will include new developments in theoretical approaches, collective electrostatic effects, quantum interference effects, and light-matter interactions in junctions. Also, the role of the environment and the dynamics of junctions will be covered which are important to understand redox-events in junctions. The second part of the symposium will cover new and exciting developments in molecular scale devices making it possible study new types of catalytic reactions, extremely high field enhancements important for sensing, or the dynamics of junctions important to develop new types of switches for neuromorphic computing, or reconfigurable electronics. Abstracts will be solicited in the following areas: biomolecular electronics, mechanisms of charge transport, theory, applications.

Topics will include:

  • Dynamics of junctions
  • Reconfigurable and neuromorphic molecular electronics
  • mechanisms of charge transport
  • theory and modelling methods
  • light matter interactions in molecular junctions
  • Sensing junctions
  • Bio-active junctions
  • Chemically and catalytically active junctions
