    Abstract : In this thesis I have performed theoretical studies on the reaction dynamics in few-atom molecules. In particular, I have looked at reaction processes in which highly excited resonant states are involved. READ MORE

  2. 2. Excited States of Carotenoids and Their Functions in Light Harvesting

    Author : Donatas Zigmantas; Kemisk fysik; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; spektroskopi; magnetic and optical properties; Carotenoids; light-harvesting; excited states; excitation energy transfer; femtosecond spectroscopy; supraconductors; magnetic resonance; electrical; Condensed matter:electronic structure; time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy; magnetisk resonans; supraledare; magnetiska och optiska ; egenskaper elektriska; Kondenserade materiens egenskaper:elektronstruktur; relaxation; spectroscopy;

    Abstract : The research presented in this thesis is focused on characterization of photophysical properties of lowest singlet excited states of carotenoids and their functions in the process of photosynthetic light harvesting. It is shown that the various light-harvesting complexes utilize different strategies to achieve efficient energy transfer from carotenoids to (bacterio)chlorophylls. READ MORE

  3. 3. Excited States in Negative Ions

    Author : Johan Rohlén; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Negative Ions; Photodetachment; Atomic Physics; Experimental Physics;

    Abstract : This thesis covers experimental studies of atomic negative ions with the main goal of increasing our fundamental understanding of these fragile quantum systems. Comparisons of measurements and calculations have been used to increase our understanding of these highly correlated, yet simple, systems. READ MORE

  4. 4. Radiative lifetimes of bound excited states in anions : Measurements on long-lived metastable states in atomic anions

    Author : Odd Magnar Hole; Stockholms universitet; []

    Abstract : This thesis presents and discusses the results of measurements of the intrinsic lifetimes of bound excited anionic states. The results are valuable for evaluation of different theoretical models and computation methods and are compared to calculations when available. READ MORE

  5. 5. The Fate of Electronically Excited States : Ultrafast Electron and Energy Transfer in Solvated Donor-Acceptor Systems
