Fully-atomistic Light-driven Dynamics in Plasmonic Cavities and Interfaces

The study of confined fields in plasmonic nanocavities and their interaction with molecules and nanostructures is an area of research with vast applications, including enhanced spectroscopy techniques as well as photoinduced/photocatalytic non-equilibrium phenomena. From the theoretical perspective, either classical electromagnetic models or atomistic/quantum descriptions are usually considered. However, in many cases these models ignore the electronic and nuclear quantum effects arising from the chemical nature and dynamics of a junction, such as tunneling, adsorption geometry, structure of the interface, vibrations, etc., or include them only approximately. Hence, a full quantum dynamical description is sometimes inescapable. [more]

From Levinthal’s Paradox to the Enigma of Disappearing Polymorphs: Using Minima Hopping to Explore the Synthesizability and Stability of Materials

Each local Minimum on the potential energy surfaces corresponds to a stable structure. In a theoretical structure search one typically finds a number of low energy minima that is much larger than the number of experimentally known structures. [more]
