Electron processes in molecular materials
FCH-DCO_EPMAcad. year: 2020/2021
Course is focused on phenomena which are related to energy transitions of electrons in molecular materials, such as absorption of electromagnetic radiation, radiative and non-radiative transitions, exciton formation and transport, energy transfer, exciton dissociation, ionized states, charge transport, polarons, recombination of charge carriers, etc.
