Kick-off Meeting for ESiM Project
Published on in NEWS
From Wednesday, 22 June until today, the collaborators of the ESiM Project (Energy Storage in Molecules) came together in Dresden for their initial meeting. The project partners from Germany, Spain, France, and The Netherlands presented their individual work packages and discussed the roadmap of the 4-year project.
The European Pathfinder Open project ESiM, led by cfaed SMM Group Leader Dr. Francesca Moresco, aims to use intramolecular properties (rotations, conformational changes) for energy storage. ESiM investigates storing (and releasing) of energy in a few specific intramolecular degrees of freedom. The project combines theory and simulation, molecular design and synthesis, scanning probe microscopy and manipulation, solid-state physics and nanotechnology.
