In-person/online hybrid event

ICD-X is a two-day workshop taking place on 20th and 21st September in Glasgow, Scotland. The scope is interatomic Coulombic decay (and closely related processes such as resonant energy transfer) subject to external influences (e.g. control fields, material bodies).

 

Confirmed invited speakers are listed below, and contributed talks are welcomed. There is no registration fee, accommodation expenses will be covered for all in-person attendees on a first-come, first-serve basis. Reasonable travel expenses within the UK will also be covered.

Deadline for abstract submission and registration for in-person attendance: 31st July

Deadline for registration of online-only attendance: 17th September

Aims and Scope

Interatomic Coulombic decay (ICD) is an ultrafast process by which energy can be transferred between atoms, molecules and clusters. First theoretically predicted in 1997, it has since been observed in numerous contexts, finding relevance across a wide range of fields from radiation biology to neutralisation of highly charged ions. These applications mean situations beyond the theoretical idealisation of two particles in vacuum need to be considered, leading to an increasing interest in environment-modified ICD.

Since ICD is at its heart an energy transfer process, much of the underlying theory is formally similar to that for Förster resonance energy transfer (RET/FRET), which is well-studied in a wide variety of systems. This meeting will bring together experts from both the ICD and RET communities, facilitating future collaborations and knowledge exchange in this rapidly expanding field of study.
