Abstract:

Successful experimental and computational studies were carried out on electronic energy transfer in molecular systems subject to either coherent or incoherent light. Specific emphasis was placed on exposing and understanding the role of coherent dynamics in energy transfer, and its possible impact on the efficiency of light harvesting systems. Considerable insight into the fundamentals of these processes was obtained, and important new research directions were identified.
