WiNS Summer School 2021

Light, matter, and life: Why do we see what we see and how do we understand it?

4-5 June 2021 via Zoom

Scope of the workshop

Light-matter interaction is responsible for some of the most appealing effects in the physics of materials, which are also essential for most opto-electronic applications pervading our everyday life. From a fundamental point of view, light-matter interaction is a valuable source of information to understand the microscopic properties of materials on a quantum-mechanical level.

We aim to bring together a selected and yet representative number of scientists working at the forefront of research on light-matter interaction in inorganic, organic, and bio-materials. During the two-day workshop under the direction of Prof. Caterina Cocchi (HU/ IRIS Adlershof/ University of Oldenburg) and Dr. Zsuzsanna Heiner (HU/ SALSA), a number of invited speakers with different background will provide their insight on this exciting research topic exchanging ideas with all participants, also through hands-on and group activities. A paramount scope of this event is to establish and strengthen networks of female scientists at any level of career. Topics related to career strategies and personal development will be also part of the program, under the coordination of a professional coach.
