"Spicy world of NanoScience"
We are still accepting abstracts and registrations for the upcoming
16th International Workshop on Quantum Atomic and Molecular
Tunneling in Solids and Condensed Phases (QAMTS XVI).
The Workshop will be held at the Hotel Santa Fe in Santa Fe, NM,
Sunday June 10 through Thursday, June 14, 2012, in the historic
downtown district. An excellent suite rate of only $105 per night
has been negotiated for workshop participants.
The hallmark of this workshop has been its highly cross disciplinary
nature, which includes work on tunneling of protons and heavier species
in condensed phases in general, including biological systems, chemical
reactions, transport phenomena in solids, etc. as well as rotational
tunneling of small molecules or molecular groups.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
*Proton tunneling in hydrogen bonds
*Tunneling and proton transfer in biomolecular systems
*Kinetic isotope effects
*Tunneling in quantum ferroelectrics and paraelectrics
*Atomic and molecular tunneling in wires, on surfaces, in glasses
and amorphous systems
*Tunneling in porous materials and in diffusion phenomena
*Spin tunneling problems
*Tunneling transport in superprotonic conductors, acids and bases
*Effects of atomic tunneling on electron transport in nanosystems
*Deep inelastic (Compton) neutron scattering
*Multidimensional tunneling theories
Please consider submitting an abstract before May 1 for an oral or
poster presentation. The final selection of oral presentations will
be made by the program committee upon taking both the significance
of the paper and balance of topics at the meeting into account.
