Ultrafast Dynamics

Research Theme
Ultra-fast electron and photon driven dynamics in molecules

We have developed an approach, based on time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT), to study ionization and fragmentation processes that occur when molecules are irradiated by intense laser pulses. Current interests include studying the irradiation dynamics in biomolecules and studying the response of enantiomers during irradiation of chiral molecules.

The basis of these strands is a time-dependent density functional theory approach implemented in a real space, massively parallel computer code called EDAMAME (Ehrenfest DynAMics on Adaptive MEshes).
