Chemical Energy at the Nanoscale: Simulation meets experiment

Prof. Fernando Bresme, Imperial College London
Prof. Félix Fernández-Alonso, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory

DATE OF EVENT : 05/04/2016       DURATION : 3 day(s)

LOCATION : ZCAM Campus Actur C/ Mariano Esquillor s/n Edificio I+D 50018 Zaragoza

The primary aim of this workshop is to bring together current computational and experimental efforts aimed at exploring the transport, conversion, and storage of chemical energy at the nanoscale. We will define and establish the state-of-the-art and associated challenges in the field, and delineate short- and medium-term objectives for the development and subsequent deployment of versatile simulation tools to assist the design and interpretation of increasingly complex experimental studies, with an emphasis on particle-scattering techniques. We wish to identify new avenues for further theoretical and computational developments that can be deployed to analyse scattering experiments, hence expanding the applicability of
the latter to face the increasingly demanding challenges associated with the rational design of next-generation energy materials. Recent computational and experimental developments across the globe make this proposal timely.

With this aim in mind, we have invited well-known practitioners in the field of theory and computer simulation, and as well as expert practitioners in scattering techniques applied to energy materials. This workshop will provide a starting platform for further collaborative work using specific experimental and computational methodologies.
