3 May 2024: HYP*MOL colloquium with Rafael Gutierrez

The 4th HYP*MOL colloquium will take place at Leipzig University (Faculty of Chemistry & Mineralogy, Great Lecture Hall) on 3 May 2024, 1 pmPD Dr. Rafael Gutierrez from TU Dresden will be our speaker that day and he will present insights into “The Chirality-Induced Spin Selectivity (CISS) Effect“:

The CISS effect has revealed a surprising connection between chirality, a structural feature, and the electronic spin. Namely, extensive experimental work has shown that chiral structures are able to select one spin component, which is then preferentially transmitted.

Despite its demonstration in a broad class of organic and inorganic systems, there is not yet a unifying explanation of the CISS effect. In this talk, I will provide an overview of experimental and theoretical work in this field, highlighting main features and open problems.

Sandwiches and coffee will be available from 12:15 in the opposite part of the foyer (upstairs).
