Modeling Single-Molecule Junctions:
Novel Spectroscopies and Control

Berlin, Germany, October 14th -- 16th, 2013





Emerging technologies that allow the application of light, forces and voltages on single-molecule junctions have the potential to provide a powerful avenue for molecular control and to yield novel highly discriminating multidimensional spectroscopies. The challenge for theoretical studies is to correctly capture the complexity of these multi-scale, non-equillibrium systems. This workshop seeks to provide a roadmap to navigate the theoretical challenges by bringing together and fostering interactions between researchers in surface science, molecular electronics, single-molecule pulling and control theory.
