Charge and Energy Transfer Dynamics in Molecular Systems [NOOK Book]

Overview

This second edition is based on the successful concept of the first edition in presenting a unified perspective on molecular charge and energy transfer processes. The authors bridge the regimes of coherent and dissipative dynamics, thus establishing the connection between classic rate theories and modern treatments of ultrafast phenomena. The book serves as an introduction for graduate students and researchers.

Overview

This second edition is based on the successful concept of the first edition in presenting a unified perspective on molecular charge and energy transfer processes. The authors bridge the regimes of coherent and dissipative dynamics, thus establishing the connection between classic rate theories and modern treatments of ultrafast phenomena. The book serves as an introduction for graduate students and researchers.

Expanding the volume by nearly 50 pages all chapters have been enlarged as well as updated to account for recent developments. Among the new topics are
- semiclassical, quantum-classical hybrid, and path integral formulations of molecular dynamics
- the basics of femtosecond nonlinear spectroscopy, electron transfer reactions in proteins, molecular wires and at surfaces
- infrared spectroscopy of hydrogen bonds
- ultrafast excitation energy transfer in biological and nonbiological chromophore complexes.
More illustrating examples as well as an enlarged reference list are added. A new chapter gives an introduction into the theory of laser pulse control of molecular dynamics.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A few months after the first edition of May and Kuehn's book was released, I met a Danish colleague at a conference in Montreux (on Lake Geneva). He had spent the weekend reading the book in his hotel room, despite the beautiful weather and nice sightseeing! This anecdote illustrates the sucess met by the first edition, and if you liked it, then you will like the second edition even more! ... the book provides a didactic and pedagogic presentation of molecular processes."

Prof. Majed Chergui, Laboratory of Ultrafast Spectroscopy, Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, ChemPhysChem, 4/2005

Meet the Author

Volkhard May studied physics at Humboldt University, Berlin, and received his Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics in 1981, and his Habilitation at the College of Education, Güstrow, in 1987. He worked in the Department of Biophysics at the Institute of Molecular Biology in Berlin from 1987 to 1991, and has been a senior researcher at the Instiute of Physics, Humboldt University, since 1992. His current research activities focus on the theory of transfer phenomena in molecular nanostructures.

Oliver Kühn studied physics at Humboldt University, Berlin. After receiving his Ph.D. degree in Theoretical Physics in 1995, he worked as a postdoc first at the University of Rochester, USA, then at Lund University, Sweden. From 1997 to 2007, Prof. Kühn has been a senior researcher at the Institute of Chemistry, Free University Berlin, where he earned his habilitation in 2000. Since 2008 he is a Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Rostock. His current research interests lie in ultrafast spectroscopy and dynamics of condensed phase systems such as biomolecular hydrogen bonds and excitons in molecular aggregates.
