L'Association Européenne de Cristallographie (ECA) a lancé le 10 juin 2021 des "webinaires déjeuner". Les groupes d'intérêt spéciaux (SIG) et les groupes d'intérêt général (GIG) de l'ECA organisent à tour de rôle un webinaire adapté à la communauté des cristallographes au sens large. Le troisième webinaire sera diffusé le 14 octobre 2021 (13h) et est organisé par SIG-02 - Quantum crystallography. Le thème de ce webinaire est Quantum crystallography: developments and applications (Simon Grabowsky, University of Bern, Switzerland). Inscriptions ici.


In this webinar we will welcome Simon Grabowsky, currently Research Group Leader and Privatdozent at the Department of Chemistry, Biochemistry and Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Bern since August of 2019. Before he was Emmy Noether Research Group Leader then Extraordinary Professor, both at the University of Bremen. Furthermore, he was Australian Postdoctoral Fellow and Assistant Research Professor at the University of Western Australia.

In his talk Simon will present his perspectives on and insights to his field and highlight cornerstones of his research.

The main field of the research group is method development in quantum crystallography and application of the new methods to bonding analysis in inorganic and bio-organic chemistry. They have a strong focus on a broad spectrum of areas: “X-ray Wavefunction Refinement”, “Relativistic Effects in the Electron Density” and they investigate “Electron-Density – Property Relationships in Inorganic Chemistry”
