ICECream 2024

International Conference on Electron Capture in an environment - real experiments and models

23-26 September 2024 @ University of Tübingen, Germany

Inter-particle Coulombic electron capture (ICEC) is an environment-enabled process in which an electron can be efficiently attached to an ion, atom, molecule, or quantum dot. The excess energy is simultaneously transferred to a neighboring system which is ionized or excited. ICEC has been predicted by theoretical approaches ranging from analytical models to ab initio electronic structure and dynamical calculations. Their common assumption is that nuclei remain fixed during ICEC. However, given the time scale of ICEC, nuclear dynamics should play an important role in changing the efficiency and/or influencing the final state of the system. The aim of this conference is to gather state-of-the-art research on environment-assisted electron capture and related topics as well as on quantum-dynamical methods and experimental techniques which will provide a complete description of ICEC in the future.
