Scientists Construct Model to Illustrate Behavior of Optically Excited Materials
A group of researchers based at the University of Rochester and led by Shaul Mukamel has developed a set of theoretical models that illustrate how properties of both small and large molecules change when optically excited. Up until this point, scientists could conduct calculations on the properties of single molecules but lacked a method to explain the behavior of larger molecular structures. Mukamel said the new methods would enable scientists to better manipulate the structure of optical materials.
