Nanostructures of transition metal chalcogenides, owing to their chemical composition and nanometer dimension, exhibit a variety of fascinating properties and offer a diversity of issues for research of both fundamental and practical interest. This symposium will bring together leading scientists to discuss open problems and define future trends in this exciting field.

Topics receiving special attention include:

  • Unexpected properties due to composition and nanoscale
  • Synthetic approaches
  • Narrow window of stability
  • Structural properties of wires and tubes
  • Electronic structure
  • Magnetism, superconductivity, linear and nonlinear polarizability
  • Charge and spin transport
  • Applications

Format of the Symposium:

  • 2-day workshop
  • Informal: short presentations + discussion whole afternoon
