Symposium EL15-Chiral Materials—New Structures and Properties

In the past few years, driven by the discoveries of many new chiral electronic, optoelectronic, and photonic materials, researchers started to realize the unprecedented opportunities of designing chiral materials for a wide spectrum of symmetry-broken-enabled physical properties, as well as relevant applications from energy harvesting to information processing. This symposium aims to serve as a platform for materials researchers working on the concept of chirality across different communities to exchange their physical principles, computational and experimental approaches, recent progresses, and outstanding challenges, so as to inspire design and creation of novel chiral functionalities from molecular to device scale.

Topics will include:

  • Design of chiral materials and structures
  • Chiral electronic and spintronic properties
  • Chiral optoelectronics and photonic materials
  • Chiral bosonic excitations in materials
  • Quantum properties in chiral materials
  • A tutorial complementing this symposium is tentatively planned.

Invited Speakers (tentative):

  • Andrea Alu (The City University of New York, USA)
  • Sang-Wook Cheong (Rutgers University, USA)
  • Xiangfeng Duan (University of California, Los Angeles, USA)
  • M. Zahid Hasan (Princeton University, USA)
  • Song Jin (University of Wisconsin–Madison, USA)
  • Nicholas A. Kotov (University of Michigan, USA)
