Synopsis of the FRET and Beyond -2018 conference

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Thank you very much for your kind, interesting, and –most importantly –scientific input in advancing of FRET understanding during the conference.

During the meeting, we not only learned about the advancement of the quantum-mechanical understanding of energy transfer phenomenon but also their applications in gaining insight into the nature of the micro-world.

We also had an interesting and enlighting panel discussion concerning the question of Molecular-Scale Circuits: Realistic Goal or Vain Illusion?

I will not describe here the highlights of each invited and plenary lecture – let the authors speak for themselves in the form of video-recorded lectures (see below).

The meeting was a success on all scientific and personal levels, and we have decided to continue and invite interested researchers to an upcoming Annual Conference – 2 FRET & Beyond – 2019; April 4th through 7th, 2019. This time, we invite you to Freie Universität Berlin, Germany.
