Theory of nonlinear electronic and electronic-vibrational spectroscopies

Date Fr, 27.09.2019 - Di, 01.10.2019
Time all day
Speaker Prof. Yoshitaka Tanimura, Department of Chemistry, Kyoto University
Location EPFL, BCH 3118
Program Dear PhD students

It is our pleasure to announce a one-time-only course given in the frame of the EDCH program: Theory of nonlinear electronic and electronic-vibrational spectroscopies (CH-621)
1 ECTS.

If you are interested, please contact Anne Lene Odegaard <5ank-nev$lef6nez..os.dep%gak.arg4d@p%epu2flh7.cx'hn>

Summary
In this course, Prof Tanimura will teach the theoretical basis of multidimensional electronic and electronic-vibrational spectroscopies .The methodology will be illustrated by calculating multidimensional signals using optical Liouville pathways and reduced equations of motion.

Content
Spectral line shapes in the condensed phase contain information on various dynamic processes that modulate the transition energy, such as microscopic dynamics, inter- and intramolecular couplings, and solvent dynamics. In this course, I will teach the theoretical basis of multidimensional electronic spectroscopies (2DES) and 2D electronic-vibrational spectroscopies (2DEVS) . I will explore and describe the roles of different physical phenomena that arise from the peculiarities of dissipative dynamics in multidimensional spectra. The methodology will be illustrated by calculating multidimensional signals using optical Liouville path and reduced equations of motion approaches. A Brownian oscillator model with the nonlinear system-bath interaction will be employed to explain how fluctuation and dissipation arises from the environment. Using the hierarchy formalism, one can precisely calculate multidimensional electronic spectra for a multistate anharmonic system. The distributed source code, "nonMarkovian2009+2DES" will be demonstrated and examined.
