Computing Nonlinear Optical Responses and Spectroscopic Observables

These researchers are continuing their work to simulate the nonlinear optical observables relevant to the experiments performed in their research group. This includes molecular dynamics simulations of electron transfer in simple solvents and ionic liquids using finite field methods to project the dynamics onto third-order Raman spectroscopy and Monte Carlo simulations of exciton cooling and migration dynamics in organic films related to solar cells projected onto femtosecond transient absorption and emission measurements.
