My research is assigned to the field of Computational Chemistry with special emphasis on Density Functional Methods. The work is connected with the basic research on organic molecules and complexes, with regard to the investigation of their photophysical processes, absorption and emission of light absorbing molecules.
Research Questions are:
What affects the effectivity of a chromophore?
How does the surrounding influence the structure and photophysics of an organic chromophore?
We like to understand the photophysical properties of the molecules and to improve their luminescence characteristics with the help of Computational Chemistry.
The photophysical calculations try to answer problems raised from the experimental groups. Additionally, our interpretations can propose modified experiments to improve the strategy of solving chemical problems.
