Photoinduced Energy and Electron Transfer in the Natural and Artificial Systems

IMPRS-UFAST focus course
One of the most active areas of research is to assemble rationally tailored components at molecular level, which can capture the sunlight energy and transfer it in the desired directions. Biological protein systems, such as the antenna complexes, transfer the absorbed solar energy with unit efficiency into the reaction center, where the charge separation directs the water splitting. This course will provide an introduction to the processes of energy and electron transfer with the help of examples from natural photosynthetic complexes and organic photovoltaics. [more]
