Marco Schröter

Home University and Funding

I'm a PhD student in the group of Prof. Dr. Oliver Kühn at the University of Rostock, Germany. The research stay at the Division of Chemical Physics is funded by a one-year stipend provided by the German Academic Exchange Service.

Research Interest

My research mainly focuses on the study of energy transfer in artificial and natural light-harvesting complexes. I apply both theoretical approaches (wave-packet and density matrix based dynamics simulations) and experimental techniques (electronic two-dimensional spectroscopy) to study the coherent and dissipative exciton dynamics in molecular aggregates embedded in an environment.

Current Projects

  • Dissipative exciton dynamics in peripheral bacterial light-harvesting complexes (Division of Chemical Physics, Lund University & Institute of Physics, University of Rostock
  • Implementation of the Rostock HEOM package (Institute of Physics, University of Rostock)

Former projects

  • Dissipative exciton dynamics in model aggregates studied by the Hierarchy Equations of Motion method (Institute of Physics, University of Rostock & Division of Chemical Physics, Lund University)
  • Coherent exciton dynamics and inter-band relaxation in perylene bisimide aggregates (Institute of Physics, University of Rostock)
