Modeling, Simulating, and Analyzing 2D IR-Raman and 2D electronic-vibrational Spectroscopies

Date Do, 26.09.2019 - Do, 26.09.2019
Time 17:15h
Speaker Prof. Yoshitaka Tanimura, Kyoto University, Japan
Location EPF Lausanne, BCH 2201
Program Understanding dynamics in complex environments of molecular liquids and biological systems has been a central topic of investigation in chemistry and biology, because many important chemical processes occur exclusively in such media. The key feature of this system is that it describes irreversible dynamics refers to open quantum dynamics through which the primary system evolves toward the thermal equilibrium state at finite temperature. Our group have been working on this problem on the basis of the reduced equations of motion approach. In this talk, I overview our latest results for the following three topics.

1) 2D IR-Raman spectroscopy for liquid water [1].
2) Machine learning approach for modeling liquids water [2]
2) 2D electronic vibrational spectroscopies (2DEVS) for non-adiabatic transition system[3-5]
