topics
The understanding of light absorption and the excitation energy and electron transfer in natural/artificial photosynthesis is fundamental for the building of efficient light harvesting devices. The meetings brings together experimental physicists with theoreticians modelling molecular complexes. Methods discussed include

linear/nonlinear spectroscopy, time-resolved observations of excitation flow
atomistic models of excitons, including coupling to vibrational states
quantum coherence and dephasing dynamics in photosynthetic systems
charge transfer from excited molecules to semiconductor surfaces
