Symposium G

Progress and Challenges in Molecular Electronics II

Molecular electronics is a rapidly developing and highly interdisciplinary field of research bridging surface scientists, theorists, chemists, and physicists, aiming to improve the understanding of the mechanisms of charge transport across molecules and to develop novel nanoscale devices for applications in optoelectonics, spintronics, energy conversion and storage, and bioelectronics. Recent developments in fabrication methods make it now possible to study how charge carriers interact with molecules in great detail enabling the study of quantum effects, spin dependent transport, light-matter interactions, or thermoelectric effects, at molecular and sub-molecular length scales. Despite the tremendous progress over the last few years, new challenges and unexplained phenomena emerged. The aim of the symposium is to bring together the key players in the field to discuss recent progress and challenges.
