Utilising multi-colour pulses to investigate electronic and vibrational coherences in light-harvesting systems: A theoretical framework (JONESGU20SF)

Project Description

Two-dimensional optical spectroscopy is a powerful technique for investigating condensed phase quantum processes in chemistry and chemical physics, including resonance energy transfer, electron transfer and solvation dynamics. In this project we will develop theoretical approaches for modelling light-matter interactions within condensed phase environments. We will interact directly with experimentalists who are undertaking lab experiments to help interpret femtosecond, time resolved data.

This PhD project will involve working on non-Markovian quantum dynamics and quantum electrodynamics. Experience in quantum mechanics, applied maths and computer programming is necessary.
