ECOSS is a well-established annual meeting directed jointly by the Surface Science Division of the International Union for Vacuum Science, Technique and Applications (IUVSTA) and the Surface and Interface Section of the European Physical Society (EPS). The conference provides an excellent opportunity for scientists from Europe and from all over the world to meet and discuss the latest advances in the physics and chemistry of surfaces. Furthermore, it is a forum to discuss the progress of surface science in related innovation fields such as heterogeneous catalysis, organic molecular nano-architectures, two-dimensional materials and graphene, nanoelectronics, bio-nanoscience and functional and energy materials studied both using theoretical and experimental methods.
Students of physics, chemistry, materials science and biosciences are invited to apply for participation. There is no tuition fee. Accommodation and meals during the course will be provided by JCNS. Travel expenses will be reimbursed within reasonable limits.
Deadline for application is May 21, 2023.
The goal of this year’s school is to provide students with an overview of the state-of-the art in the field of orbital physics in strongly correlated systems and the techniques used to investigate them. After introducing fundamental models and effects, lectures will focus on these effects in real materials, with introductions to crystallography and symmetries, methods for building minimal tight-binding Hamiltonians, the Jahn-Teller effect, and Coulomb-enhancements of the Jahn-Teller effect. Advanced lectures will address orbital ordering, orbital liquids and Kitaev materials, as well as theoretical approaches, from self-interaction corrected density functionals to dynamical mean-field theory and beyond. Experimental lectures will present probes of spin, orbital, and charge degrees of freedom, techniques to image orbitals and orbital ordering, as well as orbitally-controlled transport phenomena.
A strong focus will be on the development of scalable processes, novel modelling or characterization techniques as well as material properties that can be achieved using particles and that would be hard to obtain using other approaches. Anisotropic, complex particles and supra-particles that bring new or multiple functionalities to materials are of particular interest.
The conference will take place in Huizhou, a beautiful city of Guangdong province of southeast China. At the present, Institute of Modern Physics is constructing two large-scale scientific facilities in Huizhou, High Intensity Heavy-ion Accelerator Facility (HIAF) and China initiative Accelerator Driven System (CiADS). The new facilities will enable scientists to continue to push the frontiers of science and technology, for the benefit of all. The scientific program of this conference will cover experimental and theoretical aspects of synthesis of the superheavy elements, nuclear reactions, nuclear structure, chemistry, atomic properties, and related topics.
