In a collaboration with Walter Schottky Institute, we published a setup that allows for the interferometric detection of photocurrent excitation spectra. The article entitled "Time-domain photocurrent spectroscopy basedon a common-path birefringent interferometer" was generously supported by the International Graduate School of Science and Engineering - IGSSE.
Our article entitled "Anharmonic Molecular Motion Drives Resonance Energy Transfer in peri-Arylene Dyads" was recently published in Frontiers in Chemistry. The article is part of a special issue on Vibrationally-Mediated Chemical Dynamics. This work represents the result of a long-standing collaboration between us and Tomáš Mančal, František Šanda, (both Charles University in Prague) and LMU's Heinz Langhals.
We are happy to announce that The Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters accepted our article entitled "Annihilation Dynamics of Molecular Excitons Measured at a Single Perturbative Excitation Energy" for publicaiton. In a collabroration between organic synthetic chemistry (C. Lambert), quantum chemistry (F. Plasser, M. Menger) and theory (F. Šanda), we use fifth order multidimensional spectroscopy as a sensitive probe for exciton-exciton annihilation dynamics.
Our group had the pleassure of contributing a total of three papers to a special issue in Chemical Physics honouring Leonas Valkunas. The topics we cover range from fifth order multidimensional spectroscopy, a theoretical study of exciton-exciton annihilation to a generalized Huang-Rhys factor for molecular aggregates.
