Computational models for molecular optical activity

  • Full or part time
  • Application Deadline
    Thursday, February 21, 2019
  • Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)
    Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

Spectroscopic methods of molecular optical activity provide unique information about molecules in solution. However, the interpretation of the spectra is a challenging process involving many aspects of molecular dynamics, physics and quantum chemistry. In the thesis we will aim at new phenomena only partially understood so far, such as Resonance Raman optical activity and anharmonic vibrational energies of molecules.
