About Strong Coupling with Organic Molecules (SCOM)​

​"SCOM 2021 is the third international workshop on strong coupling in organic materials. It will be held in Gothenburg in Sweden on 26-28 April 2021. It builds on the very successful workshops, SCOM16 and SCOM18, held in San Sebastian and in Eindhoven in 2016 and in 2018, respectively.
The workshop brings together researchers from different disciplines including: Photonics, Quantum Optics, Plasmonics, Materials, Chemistry and Condensed Matter Physics to discuss the latest developments in the study of the strong coupling involving organic molecules and optical cavities. Leaders in the field discuss recent results on phenomena that involve polaritonic states, molecular excitations, molecular vibrations and their complex interactions, giving rise to a plethora of fascinating effects of both scientific and technological interest."
