Paper Numbering: Proceedings of SPIE follow an e-First publication model. A unique citation identifier (CID) number is assigned to each article at the time of publication. Utilization of CIDs allows articles to be fully citable as soon as they are published online, and connects the same identifier to all online and print versions of the publication. SPIE uses a six-digit CID article numbering system structured as follows: SPIEDigitalLibrary.org

  • The first four digits correspond to the SPIE volume number.

  • The last two digits indicate publication order within the volume using a Base 36 numbering system employing both numerals and letters. These two-number sets start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B … 0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc. The CID Number appears on each page of the manuscript.

Interfaces play a key role in the function of a plethora of chemical systems spanning the range from biological membranes, solid state materials, catalysts, all the way to organic bulk heterojunction materials for photovoltaics. The “Physical Chemistry of Interfaces and Nanomaterals” conference provides a venue for the intermixing of physical chemists, physicists, biophysicists and chemical engineers that can foster new ideas which can advance each other’s field.

This year’s fourteenth edition of the conference moved along the spirit of previous years including sessions on charge generation at organic interfaces, charge transfer across device interfaces, photophysics of hybrid photovoltaic systems, and hybrid and inorganic nanomaterials. A central feature this year were sessions dedicated to the theory, development, and application of novel multidimensional non-linear optical probes of interfacial phenomena and structural dynamics. Sessions focused upon solar energy conversion, modeling electronic processes in nano-scale materials, carrier transport in nanostructured systems, electron transfer at interfaces, advanced imaging techniques focusing at the atomistic scale, as well as sessions focusing on novel and nascent experimental techniques that probe interfacial structure.

The science was diverse and exciting, representing some of the best physical chemistry groups from around the world. We are grateful to SPIE, the Organizing Committee and most of all to the speakers that contributed to the success of this meeting.
