Theory - 14th Symposium on Computational Challenges in Two-Dimensional Materials and Nanotubes (CCTN19)

Chair: Yoshiyuki Miyamoto (AIST, Japan)
Local Organizer: Ermin Malic (Chalmers UT, Sweden)
Organizer: Christophe Bichara (CNRS and Aix-Marseille U, France)
Zhuhua Zhang (Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, China)

   Recent significant progress in growth techniques has enabled fabrication of a variety of low-dimensional materials, such as nanotubes, nanoribbons, graphene and atomically thin 2D materials, and their reassembled heterostructures. It has now also become viable to reach a precise control of structural properties, such as chirality, thickness, widths, layer stacking sequences etc. Theoretical modeling and prediction of new structures/properties as well as fundamental understanding of elementary mechanisms behind optics, dynamics and transport in these materials have become indispensable to accelerate the research and developments in this realm. The series of Computational Challenges in Two-dimensional materials and Nanotubes (CCTN), organized since 2005 at Nagano, has been one of world-leading theory symposia in this field. We are happy to announce CCTN19 as one of parallel symposia in NT19 at Würzburg in 2019. The CCTN19 organizing team welcomes participants across the world to discuss recent theoretical advances on low-dimensional materials and exchange ideas of how to move this research field forward.

   This parallel symposium focuses on advancing our knowledge of the spectroscopic properties of nanotubes and other low dimensional materials. Our understanding of the diverse nanoscale phenomena in these materials has improved enormously within the last years, driven by the ongoing developments of spectroscopic tools, progress in material synthesis and handling, as well as conceptual advances. At the same time, this enabled an increasing number of novel applications in electronics, photonics and related areas, including metrology. The NSAP19 organizing team welcomes participants across the world to present and discuss recent experimental and theoretical advances on the spectroscopic properties of carbon nanotubes and other low-dimensional materials, and to exchange ideas of how to move this research field forward.
