Ii. Research activities
Modeling excitation energy transfer in dendrimers

The electronic and vibrational properties of dendrimers make it possible to describe the photoinduced process of excitation energy transfer from the periphery to the core via vibronic diabatic models of parameterized Hamiltonian transport between oligomers in weak interaction (pseudofragmentation associated with meta-substitution). Each oligomer is in turn decomposable into strongly coupled benzene and acetylenic sites.

Research themes Collaborations & Contracts Research themes

  • Theoretical and computational photochemistry; non-adiabatic quantum dynamics; quantum chemistry for excited electronic states; conical intersections; Analytical models of effective vibronic diabatic Hamiltonians.
  • Methodological development oriented towards the modeling and simulation of ultrafast photoinduced phenomena in molecular and macromolecular systems (internal conversion, photoreactivity, photostability, transport/migration of electron excitation or charge) observable experimentally by time-resolved spectroscopy techniques (femtochemistry and attophysics).

Collaborations & Contracts
