The International School: "Synthesis and Characterization of Conjugated Materials for Near IR Applications"

Events Calendar
25.09.2014 - 26.09.2014


Anticipated participants:
PhD students and Postdoc as well as equivalent both in OSNIRO project and external

This international school is organized by Chalmers University of Technology under the EU project OSNIRO. The aim of the school is to bring together PhD students and postdocs in the related field and give them an overview about organic materials for
NIR application with a focus on materials synthesis.

The first day will be focused on simple modelling of conjugated systems and on different types of structure-property relationships. In the evening a training activity will be held about how to design materials for different NIR-applications. On the second day different types of synthetic procedures will be discussed and how different purification procedures can be used for achieving clean and welldefined materials. Finally, different characterisation methods commonly used for analysing conjugated materials will be discussed.

The school is free of charge for fellows in OSNIRO project. For external participants, the registration fee is 160 EURO. All the participants need to book and pay for the accommodation to the hotel directly. The accommodation and payment information will be sent to the confirmed participants. Please register before June 27, 2014. Registration through this link is compulsory. There will be limited seats. First-come first-served.
