Sean, David L, and Joseph have just put out a paper investigating the photoionization of Mn2+-doped ZnO quantum dots. The article investigates non-radiative decay in these structures using surface hopping non-adiabatic dynamics. The paper is titled “Non-adiabatic Molecular Dynamics Investigation of Photoionization State Formation and Lifetime in Mn2+-Doped ZnO Quantum Dots” and appears in Phys. […]

Feizhi’s most recent paper, “Quantum coherent plasmon in silver nanowires: A real-time TDDFT study“, has been accepted to the Journal of Chemical Physics. The paper approaches the common classical concept of the plasmon from a quantum perspective. Excitations along different axes of these 1D nanostructures are investigated and coherent wave packets are studied using real-time […]
