575. Wilhelm und Else Heraeus-Seminar

“Functional metalorganics and hybrids”

17 - 19 November, 2014 — Physikzentrum Bad Honnef, Germany

The aim of this workshop is to bring together scientists from experiment and theory in the field of functional metalorganics and hybrid structures. The meeting will consist of invited talks with time for discussion and provide the possibility to present results and open questions during poster sessions. We encourage everyone, especially young scientists to contribute a poster and take the opportunity for scientific exchange within an informal framework.

Topics of the seminar will be:

  • metalorganic molecules on surfaces and their interactions
  • molecular magnets
  • molecular spintronics
  • magnetic properties of molecules on surfaces
  • hybrids with carbon based materials

Date and venue

The seminar will take place

November 17-19, 2014

at the Physikzentrum in Bad Honnef (near Bonn, Germany).
