Session M – Spin Dynamics, Spin Migration, and Spin-Spin Interactions in Chemistry and Biology
- Objectives : this symposium will bring chemists, biological scientists, and engineers with diverse expertise who have a common interest in employing ideas from biology and chemistry to control spin relaxation dynamics, spin migration dynamics, and the nature of spin-spin interactions. This symposium will provide a platform for interfacing basic science with applied engineering, as controlling electron spin is central to the emerging fields of spintronics and quantum information science.
- Topics covered will include radical pair interactions in photosynthesis and artificial photosynthesis, methods for interrogating spin-spin interactions, the chirality induced spin selectivity effect, synthetic assemblies that control spin migration, quantum coherence effects, spin transport, spin teleportation, and generating/controlling spin currents
- Session Chair : Michael J. Therien (Duke University)
