Center for Nonlinear Studies Conference
ELECTRONIC AND VIBRATIONAL INTERACTIONS IN CARBON NANOTUBES
The conference is sponsored by the Center for Nonlinear Studies, Theoretical Division, and Chemistry Division at Los Alamos National Laboratory and supported by the U.S. Department of Energy
This workshop will focus on interaction between electronic and vibrational behavior in carbon nanotubes including the following areas: Raman studies of electron-phonon coupling, theoretical studies on electron-phonon coupling and excitonic properties, phonon and exciton structure observed in electronic spectra, coherent phonon studies, link between phonons and transport, link between phonons and photoinduced dynamics, link between nanotube structure/chirality and electronic and optical responses.

We encourage participation of students and postdocs in the form of contributed talks (15-20 min). We will waive the registration fee and reimburse part of their travel expenses (up to ~$500). Please inform interested people in your group/department about this opportunity. They will need to submit a title and an abstract of their presentations to us (skdoorn @ lanl.gov or serg @ lanl.gov). The deadline for abstracts is August 1, 2006.
The meeting will be held in the beautiful hotel La Posada de Santa Fe ( http://www.LaPosadaDeSantaFe.com ), located in the very heart of Santa Fe, NM. A block of rooms has been reserved for conference participants.
The conference is open to the public.
