Atomistic simulations of dye sensitized surfaces in presence of a liquid solvent

Dye sensitized surfaces play an important role in many technological applications, most prominently in Gr├Ątzel solar cells. The adsorption geometry and stability of the dye molecules depends strongly on the presence and the kind of liquid solvent which is used as an electrolyte in such devices. In this talk I will present combined first-principles molecular dynamics simulations and computational spectroscopy to shed light on the intricate interplay between solvent, structure, and optical properties in such systems.


to the European Conference on Materials and Technologies for Sustainable Growth website.

ECo MaTech will be held in Bled (Slovenia) from 19th to 21st of September 2013.

Eco MaTech is the third edition of a conference that started in 2009. The aim of ECo MaTech is to gather representatives of academic and R&D institutions, industry, governmental agencies and civil society to:

- present their work, ideas and products, 
- increase fruitful exhanges between all the actors involved in sustainable growth technologies, 
- increase the networking with sustainable growth professionals, 
- establish a general discussion platform on sustainable growth.


The conference excursion will take you to the Alpine lake Bohinj (http://www.bohinj.si/en) and waterfall Savica (http://www.burger.si/Slapovi/Bohinj/Savica/uvod_ENG.html).
A farewell party will follow the lake trip by a boat. Comfortable shoes are recommended.

Only cash is exepted for on-site payment.

The poster panels are 1m wide and 2m high. The standrad A0 size posters are recommended (841mm:1189mm).
