Description
The workshop is live-streamed on the ICTP Condensed Matter and Statistical Physics YouTube page at the following link:


The aim of the workshop is to discuss recent progress in the investigation of dynamics of excited charges in semiconductors. The workshop will reach a global audience.

Topics:
  • Electron transport
  • Ultrafast dynamics
  • Light-matter interactions
  • Polaron formation and dynamics
  • Exciton dynamics and dissociation
  • Excited-state relaxation
  • Time-dependent density functional theory
  • Many-body perturbation theory
