Assignment to Modules

Further Information

Courses are together with exams the building blocks for modules. Please keep in mind that information on the contents, learning outcomes and, especially examination conditions are given on the module level only – see section "Assignment to Modules" above.

additional remarks Different types of elementary processes in molecular systems Application of Fermi's Golden Rule to molecular transitions Correlation-function formalism for the rate expression Dephasing and lineshape Reorganization and Electron-Phonon coupling Intramolecular transitions: radiative (absorption, fluorescence) radiationless (internal conversion, intersystem crossing) Coherent electronic excitations ( molecular aggregates, polymers) Incoherent energy transfer (Förster-transfer and Dexter mechanism, disorder and narrowing) Electron transfer (Marcus' Theory, reorganization energy and activation energy, superexchange and charge transfer in DNA) Proton transfer (double Born-Oppenheimer separation, adiabatic and nonadiabatic, strongly bound protons)
