The Optical Probes Conference is the number one series in the field of photophysics of organic semiconductors. The previous conferences took place at Snowbird (1992), Salt Lake City (1994), San-Diego (1997), Salt Lake City (2000), Venice (2003), Bangalore (2005), Turku (2007), and Beijing (2009). The Excited State Processes Conference focuses on fundamental photo induced phenomena in various nanostructured materials. Please browse these links to explore topics of our past ESP meetings at LANL. 2001, 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009.The scope of the current conference is a variety of excited state phenomena in technologically important materials and biosystems, including size-dependent and time-dependent electronic interactions,excited state dynamics, quantum confinement, and carrier transport, emphasizing similarity of the phenomena rather than specifics of the systems. Topics Include: * Organic and polymeric materials (photophysics, chemistry, and dynamics) * Organic/polymeric electronic devices (energy transfer and charge transport) * Carbon nanotubes (ultrafast processes and functional devices) * Organo-metallic complexes (excited state potentials and photocatalysis) * Semiconductor nanocrystals and metal nanoparticles (from novel structures to novel physical phenomena) * Biosystems (conformations, energy/charge transport, spectroscopy and photosynthesis) * Organic and inorganic nanostructured photovoltaic phenomena (physics, chemistry, and devices) * Molecular and supramolecular ordered assembly at nanoscales * Energy transfer phenomena and chemico- and bio-sensors * Spin dynamics in organic systemsLimited support for junior researchers including postdocs and students is available.
