About these proceedings


Relaxations of Excited States and Photo-Induced Structural Phase Transitions are the topics discussed during the 19th Taniguchi Symposium. Here, 27 worldwide renowned physicists and chemists report recent topics related to this quite new theme from the view points of both material science and solid-state spectroscopy. The phenomena within the scope of this conference are as follows: >Neural-ionic transistions of organic charge-transfer salts. >Optical excitations, lattice relaxactions and photo-induced phenomena. >Optical properties of the C60 crystal and photo-induced polymerization. >Self-trapped excitons, polarons, solitons and other nonlinear photo-excitations in various insulators. >Photo-induced structural changes in ferroelectrics, semiconductors and amorphous materials.
