Frontiers in Photochemistry - Fusion Conferences

18–21 February 2018
Cancun, Mexico

Scientific chairs: Dr. Amanda Morris (Assistant Professor, Virginia Tech) and Prof. Maria Abrahamsson (Associate Professor, Chalmers University of Technology). 

The conference will focus on the frontiers (or cutting-edge) of research in the photochemical sciences. Topics to be discussed are:

  • Spintronics
  • Photon Fusion/Singlet Fission
  • Perovskites
  • Energy Transfer within Metal Organic Frameworks
  • Photo-acids/photo-bases and photo-proton transport

Target Audience

Scientists working in the broad field of photochemical sciences will be interested in the conference. This may include those from academia, national laboratories, research institutes, and/or related industries. We expect a good mix of both young, emerging chemists and established leaders in the field. Additionally, efforts will be undertaken to provide representation across Europe, Asia, and the Americas.

Learning Objectives

  1. Introduce the newest advances (discovery, approaches, etc) in the field of photochemistry through presentations (oral and poster) and lively discussion.
  2. Develop a deeper understanding of photochemical principles, current research challenges, and the future of the field.
  3. Provide an environment for cross-talk between photochemical disciplines and to promote collaborations.
