Chemical Control of Heating and Cooling in Molecular Junctions: Optimizing Function and Stability
ID: 258806
Start date: 2010-12-01, End date: 2015-11-30
Nanoscale systems binding single molecules, or small numbers of molecules, in conducting junctions show considerable promise for a range of technological applications, from photovoltaics to rectifiers to sensors. These environments differ significantly from the traditional do...

Quantum Monte-Carlo in mesoscopic devices
ID: 257241
Start date: 2011-01-01, End date: 2015-12-31
Understanding electronic correlations remains one of the biggest challenges of theoretical condensed matter physics. Mesoscopic systems, where electronic confinement can be externally controlled, are natural test beds for understanding the effects of correlations, and the lac...

SL(2,R)-action on flat surfaces and geometry of extremal subvarieties of moduli spaces
ID: 257137
Start date: 2010-10-01, End date: 2015-09-30
Dynamics on polygonal billiard tables is best understood by unfolding the table and studying the resulting flat surface. The moduli space of flat surfaces carries a natural action of SL(2,R) and all the questions about Lie group actions on homogeneous spaces reappear in this ...

Constraint Satisfaction Problems: Algorithms and Complexity
ID: 257039
Start date: 2011-01-01, End date: 2015-12-31
The complexity of Constraint Satisfaction Problems (CSPs) has become a major common research focus of graph theory, artificial intelligence, and finite model theory. A recently discovered connection between the complexity of CSPs on finite domains to central problems in unive...

Attoelectronics: Steering electrons in atoms and molecules with synthesized waveforms of light
ID: 258501
Start date: 2010-12-01, End date: 2016-11-30
In order for electronics to meet the ever raising demands for higher speeds of operation, the dimensions of its basic elements drop continuously. This miniaturization, that will soon meet the dimensions of a single molecule or an atom, calls for new approaches in electronics ...
