Accurate Nonadiabatic Dynamics: Putting Your Best Foot ForwardChemistry Department Seminar

"Accurate Nonadiabatic Dynamics: Putting Your Best Foot Forward" by David Yarkony of Johns Hopkins University

Dr. Yarkony will review nonadiabatic processes, including their relevance to biological chemistry and solar energy storage, emphasizing the role of conical intersections and providing a historical perspective. He will present accurate simulations of nonadiabatic reactions and photodissociation, which rely on accurate representations of adiabatic potential energy surfaces coupled by conical intersections. He will also describe a new approach to accurately provide the requisite ab initio electronic structure data in a timely manner.
