Molecular Response Properties Winter School 2019


Northern Norway

Are you a PhD student or researcher interested in the study of interactions between light and molecular materials? Then you may also be interested in participating in MRPWS 2019 in a venue north of the Arctic circle in northern Norway with a fair chance to observe Aurora Borealis. The event takes place during January 14 –18, 2019 .

The school is organised by Trond Saue, Kenneth Ruud and Patrick Norman who have their backgrounds in the development and application of response theory methods in quantum chemistry. Applications include electric and magnetic spectroscopic properties of molecules, including linear and nonlinear interactions.

The five-day programme will include comprehensive presentations of time-dependent response theory and electrodynamics. Response theory is explored in the time and frequency domains and with use of different quantum mechanical formulations. Electrodynamics is targeted towards an understanding of internal and external field interactions in/with molecular systems. More applied lectures cover presentations of linear and nonlinear optical properties, vibrational spectroscopies, UV/vis and X-ray absorption spectroscopies and birefringences, and magnetic resonance spectroscopies.

The registration is limited to 40 persons and the fee includes full board at Haraldvollen Senter.

Warmly welcome!

Trond Saue, Kenneth Ruud, and Patrick Norman.
