2013 Workshop on Surface Plasmons, Metamaterials, and Catalysis (Day 2)

Tuesday, October 22, 2013
8:00 AM  to 9:30 PM

BioScience Research Collaborative
Rice University
6100 Main St
Houston, Texas, USA

We invite you to attend the ARO Workshop on Surface Plasmons, Metamaterials, and Catalysis (http://Plasenhcat2013.rice.edu).

The goal of this workshop will be to explore the opportunities for chemical catalysis arising from recent revolutionary advances in the fields of metamaterials and plasmonics. To this end, the workshop will bring together scientists from the disciplines of electrochemistry, catalysis, and plasmonics, which have not traditionally had a common platform.
