GRK Colloquium:
Excitations in condensed matter: from theory to real materials I

June 21 @ 14:15 15:45

This lecture series on excitations in condensed matter will explore electronic excitations, linking theoretical concepts and experimental observations. The first lecture will cover ground-state and excited-state solutions of the many-body Schrödinger equation for electrons and nuclei. We will illustrate how these solutions are linked to motion on the nanoscale with examples from ultrafast nanoscience and biochemistry. We will also discuss time-dependent density functional theory, highlighting its success in studying plasmons, the electronic excitations in metals.
