Conference Announcement

International Conference 2018
Non-equilibrium Dynamics of Condensed Matter in the Time Domain

Abbey Rolduc, September 3-6, 2018

Organized by the CRC 1242 and funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft

The conference will be a forum for presentation and discussion of recent experimental and theoretical developments in the field of non-equilibrium dynamics excited by external stimuli such as light, ion, or electrical field pulses. We welcome abstracts for your contributions as well as from your coworkers and/or students.

Beugungsbild schmal

This conference provides a podium to present and to discuss recent results of experimental and theoretical work on non-equilibrium dynamic processes in condensed matter. In particular, we are interested in processes which are triggered by impulsive external stimuli such as pressure, particle, or electromagnetic field pulses. Thereby, the meeting aims to contribute to the development of a comprehensive understanding of non-equilibrium lattice and electron dynamics in real materials, including those with reduced dimensionality.
