The world of quantum chemistry meets in Heidelberg


9th Molecular Quantum Mechanics Conference (MQM 2019)

The Max-Planck-Institut für Kohlenforschung organizes a major international conference in the field of physical chemistry in summer 2019, bringing together researchers from all over the world in Heidelberg.

Banner MQM

The 9th Molecular Quantum Mechanics Conference (MQM 2019) is expected to attract around 400 scientists and students from all over the world, as well as industry representatives who would like to know more out about the state of the art in quantum chemistry.

Therefore, special attention is paid to new methodological developments which open up future perspectives for chemistry and the related fields of biochemistry, pharmacy and material sciences.

The "Molecular Quantum Mechanics" conference series has been held every three years in various countries since 2001 and traditionally honors the scientific achievements of leading scientists in the field, most of whom were born in the host country.

The MQM 2019 in Germany will be held in honor of Prof. Werner Kutzelnigg, Prof. Wilfried Meyer and Prof. Sigrid Peyerimhoff, and in memory of Prof. Reinhart Ahlrichs.

All of these four outstanding scientists have made seminal contributions to the field of electronic structure theory, in particular to the understanding of electron correlation phenomena and in the development of new and powerful approximation methods in this area.

The conference focusses on theoretical chemistry, mainly wave function theory, and consists of around 60 lectures by internationally renowned researchers, two poster exhibitions, and four historical presentations.

Abstract submission and registration is open now until March 31st.

Im Focus: Electrons in the fast lane

Solar cells based on perovskite compounds could soon make electricity generation from sunlight even more efficient and cheaper. The laboratory efficiency of these perovskite solar cells already exceeds that of the well-known silicon solar cells. An international team led by Stefan Weber from the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) in Mainz has found microscopic structures in perovskite crystals that can guide the charge transport in the solar cell. Clever alignment of these "electron highways" could make perovskite solar cells even more powerful.

Solar cells convert sunlight into electricity. During this process, the electrons of the material inside the cell absorb the energy of the light....
