The dynamics paper on photoionization of ZnO quantum dots is now online

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. Chem. Chem. Phys.
