Thorsten Hansen CHEM Talks

Department of Chemistry has initiated a new series of scientific seminars presenting chemical research at the department. The seminars will always be held Fridays 12:15 – 12:45, the language will be English and introducing the scientific field of one of our researchers.

Associate Professor Thorsten Hansen will give the third “CHEM Talks" Friday 26/3-2021 at 12:15 – 12:45

All interested are welcome to join the seminar.

 

Electron transfer on ultra-fast timescales"

Electron transfer is at the core of the green technologies of the future; it is at the heart of life itself. We study transfer of charge and energy in molecular settings, for example within photosynthetic protein complexes. We explore how new coherent spectroscopies can capture the dynamics of these processes. The theory of open quantum systems is the theoretical framework necessary to explore how the electron which transfers is impacted by its environment.
