Dr Ivan Kassal
Honorary appointment (pending)
I'm a theorist interested in topics such as:
Energy and charge transport in photosynthetic complexes
Photophysics of organic solar cells
Quantum computing and quantum simulation, especially for chemical problems
Photonic quantum computing
Superradiance occurs when several emitters emit radiation in phase, causing the emission to occur much faster than it would if each emitter was independent. This project is about simulating...
|Theory of organic photovoltaics||
Organic solar cells differ from conventional (inorganic) ones in several ways. Most importantly, organic materials are disordered, meaning that charges tend to be localised and move by hopping---quite distinct from the band transport in...
|Quantum enhancement of light harvesting in sunlight||
Photosynthetic organisms harvest light through large antenna complexes containing many chlorophyll molecules. Recent experiments have found that energy may be transported through antenna...
