Workshop 5

Scattering from Liquid Surfaces and Interfaces

Thursday PM, May 5, 2005
Location: Bldg. 402, Lecture Hall

Friday AM, May 6, 2005
Location: Bldg. 362, Auditorium

Organizers: Binhua Lin, CARS, The University of Chicago, and Ivan Kuzmenko, Advanced Photon Source

Understanding of interfacial properties and thermodynamics is fundamental in many research areas, including biological structure-function, molecular recognition, interfacial self-assembly, molecular engineering of soft interfaces, and molecular transport across interfaces. The application of surface-sensitive synchrotron x-ray scattering techniques has led to a major advance in the investigation of phenomena at liquid surfaces and interfaces. This workshop will highlight recent work on liquid surfaces and interfaces, including lipid-protein interactions at the air/water interface, organic/inorganic Langmuir monolayer systems, electrified liquid/liquid interfaces, liquid metal-X interfaces, surfaces of polymer liquids, and pure liquid surfaces/interfaces.
