El GEFES organiza un simposio sobre Materiales Moleculares en Superficies en la XXXVII Reunión Bienal de la Real Sociedad Española de Física, que se celebrará en Zaragoza, del 15 al 19 de julio de 2019. Este simposio se celebrará el jueves 18 de julio.
Este simposio se complementa con el simposio organizado por el grupo de Nanociencia y Materiales Moleculares y que tendrá lugar el 17 de julio.
Abstract: Molecular materials offer a large range of physical properties via chemical design. In addition, surfaces actively interact with molecules, paving the way for the emergence of new structures at multiples scales and with novel functionalities. Thus, molecular science on surfaces crosses over “chemistry” and “physics” and covers a wide range of very active research fields: on-surface synthesis, astrochemistry, nanopatterning, spintronics, molecular electronics, etc. This symposium provides the opportunity to share the last scientific achievements on molecular materials on surfaces, from individual molecules to two-dimensional systems, covering fundamental aspects on on-surface synthesis, supramolecular organization and novel properties.
Charla Plenaria: Leo Gross (Zurich Research Laboratory, Zurich, Switzerland)
Leo Gross has been Research Staff Member at the IBM Research – Zurich Laboratory since 2009. He is the head of the atom and molecule manipulation group. He and his team study on-surface reactions by scanning tunnelling microscopy (STM) and atomic force microscopy (AFM); they develop and apply the AFM as a tool for structure elucidation of individual molecules and investigate single-electron charging and transfer on the atomic scale. He has been awarded several prizes, including an ERC Consolidator Grant for the project “AFM for Molecular Structure Elucidation” (AMSEL) in 2016, the Feynman Prize for Nanotechnology (Foresight Institute ) in 2012, the Gerhard Ertl Young Investigator Award in 2010 and the Tiburtius Preis in 2006.
