Title of the seminar:
Exploitation of solar energy (abstract attached).

Professor, Ph.D., Dr.Sci. Kurt Valentin Mikkelsen and his group use scientific computing methods to investigate the dynamics and control of molecular perturbations, solvent effects, chemical reactions in homogeneous and heterogeneous environments. Presently, we target areas as biophotonics (design of optimal two-photon sensitizers), photonics (structure-property relationships for potential optical data and computer components), nanoscience (linear and nonlinear optical properties of carbon nanotubes),  development of new models for homogeneous and heterogeneous solvation along with the calculation of linear and non-linear molecular properties of solutes and development of new models to describe interactions between nanosized particles and organic molecules along with the calculation of kinetic parameters used in macroscopic modelling in nanoscience and atmospheric chemistry. For the last four years we have investigated and developed methods for the capture and storage of solar energy.

The BTECH research seminars are a new initiative that focuses on professional inspiration and insights as well as knowledge sharing across study programmes and research sections.

Sign up for the seminars and stay updated on the latest academic trends within BTECH’s research areas.

The research seminars consist of a presentation and a discussion – more information about the contents of the individual seminars will follow.

Sandwiches will be served to all participants.
