Scientific report on “HoW exciting! Workshop on excitations in solids Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin”, Berlin, Germany August 3 – 11, 2016

 

The third Berlin edition of the “HoW exciting! Workshop on excitations in solids” was a very successful event. It took place in the Campus Adlershof of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. The subject of the workshop, namely excitations in solids, is extremely up-to-date, attracting the attention of a vast interdisciplinary community. Technological applications based on excitations in solids are closely interconnected with the fundamental physical mechanisms ruling them. A deep understanding of such basic properties is therefore essential and makes the role of theory crucial in this respect. Assessing the state of the art of the theoretical approaches to address excited-state properties of materials and establishing their link with the most recent experimental observations were the main goals of this workshop, which can be considered successfully achieved.
