Photo-induced Phenomena

The Theoretical Chemistry axis investigates several phenomena activated by the light-matter interaction at the DFT, TD-DFT, GW/BSE and post-Hartree-Fock levels:

  • Photocatalytic water splitting: The group has developed an expertise in the characterization of optoelectronic properties of semiconductors for the water splitting reaction. 
  • Inorganic photochromism: We are working on the modelling of the photochromism of natural and artificial minerals of the sodalite family (ANR JCJC TeneMod)
  • DNA photolesions: We are interested in delineating the mechanistic pathways underlying photolesions, as induced by direct UV/Vis absorption or by photosensitization based on QM/MM(-MD) simulations.
  • 2D UV-Vis spectroscopy: We are developing tools to understand the emerging technic 2D UV-Vis that is able to investigate excited state properties of coupled chromophores (ANR Femto2DNA).
  • Excited state properties of chromophores developed for biological application: In collaboration with the axis of photonics, we investigate the intersystem crossing of molecules developed for singlet oxygen generation and confocal fluorescence imaging.
