3.1 Dynamics of Condensed Phase Molecular Systems
Project coordinator(s): E. Nibbering, O. Kornilov
People who contribute to the project

 

Team members drawn from Departments A2 and C1 contribute since 2011 to project 3.1, a merger of project 2-04 (itself a merger of previous projects II.11 and II.12) with some recent condensed phase activities previously allocated to project 2-03. Department C1 has been working on femtosecond molecular spectroscopy of condensed phase systems for many years. This department has its roots in the previous versions of the Departments C1, C3 and B3. The team was formed in 1998 from Raman experts of the Lau-group and ultrafast spectroscopy experts originating from Department C3. Biophysicists of the Leupold-group and of the Hamm group have contributed in the years 1999-2003 with research on photosynthetic light harvesting and multidimensional spectroscopy of peptide systems, respectively. Recent progress on ultrafast photoelectron spectroscopy of molecular systems in liquid jets pursued in Department A2 expand the methodology of probing condensed phase dynamics of molecular systems.
