Self-assembling of Particles into Longitudinal and Transverse Structures

Self-organization of nanoparticles or cold atoms is attracting increasing interest in view of possible applications for self-assembling large scale patterns with a high degree of periodicity. Self-organization is particularly interesting when it is induced by incident light fields giving rise to collective coupling and allowing for a dynamic control of the organization process. The workshop on "Self-assembling of Particles into Longitudinal and Transverse Structures" at Porquerolles, France joins experimentalists and theorists, accredited experts in this field, with the aim to shed light on fundamental aspects of the collective dynamics.

The following topics will be adressed:

  • collective instabilities
  • long range interactions
  • connection to plasma physics
  • multiple scattering in cold gases
  • pattern formation
