Excited States Dynamics

Reactions involving multiple electronic states are important in studing light-harvesting molecule, photochemistry, UV damage, isomerization, etc. To simulate these processes we use ab initio methods to calculate the potential energies and couplings. In this approach the motions of the electrons and nuclei are described quantum mechanically.
