Title: Ab-initio studies of optical excitations in solids and molecules
Speaker: Efthimios Kaxiras
Date/Time: 8 May 2014, Thursday, 11:40
Place: Sabanci University, SUNUM seminar room
Abstract: Time-dependent density functional theory has emerged as a reliable tool for studying optical excitations that provide insight to complex processes in molecules and on solid surfaces. In this presentation we will give a brief review of the underlying theoretical concepts and discuss several applications related to renewable energy sources, such as organic or hybrid phtotovoltaic devices and hydrogen fuel production through photocatalysis.
