Meeting on Optical Response in Extended Systems
"MORE of LESS".
MORE 2010 follows the spirit of the highly successful Low Energy Spectrometry Symposiums (LESS 2007 and 2009) as well as the MORE 2008 that took place in Vienna.
Optical absorption spectroscopy, resonant inelastic X-ray scattering, reflection EELS, and RAMAN spectroscopy are just a few of a large variety of experimental probes to explore the optical and higher-energy response of materials, including elemental solids, compounds, molecules on surfaces or complex nanostructures.
On the theoretical side many body perturbation theory (MBPT) and time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) represent state-of-the-art developments to describe excitation processes in materials. Both, theory and experiment being complementary, ideally should go hand in hand to promote development and leading edge research.
Main intention of MORE 2010 is bringing together experimentalists and theoreticians of these different fields and to form a platform for leading experts to discuss and exchange their recent results and scientific concepts. To ensure lively and fruitful discussions and a personal atmosphere, we limit the number of participants including speakers to 50. Contributions in the form of posters are readily welcome.
The AMICI Young Scientist Support Fund (A.Y.S.S.) offers five grants of EUR 400,-- to support young scientists. Selected applicants will get the opportunity to present the results of their work as a contributed talk (20 minutes including discussions). Young scientists are invited to apply for these grants by sending their CV, a short motivation letter, and an abstract for their presentation to firstname.lastname@example.org
