The Sir Martin Wood Prize Lecture
|Dates:||6 July 2017|
|Times:||14:00 - 16:00|
|What is it:||Lecture|
|Organiser:||Department of Physics and Astronomy|
|Who is it for:||University staff|
Professor Akihito Ishizaki from the Institute for Molecular Science, Japan will be giving a prize lecture on the Theory of Real-time Quantum Dissipative Dynamics and its Application to Photosynthetic Light Harvesting Systems.
In this presentation, we provide an overview of recent experimental and theoretical investigations of photosynthetic energy/charge transfer, specifically addressing interplays between quantum mechanical effects and dynamic fluctuations of pigments’ electronic states induced by their surrounding proteins.
Professor Ishizaki was awarded the Sir Martin Wood Prize at the Millennium Science Forum which took place at the British Embassy, Tokyo in November 2016. The Millennium Science Forum was established in 1998 to promote scientific exchange between Britain and Japan and recognize the work of outstanding young Japanese researchers. The prize is named after Sir Martin Wood, Founder of Oxford Instruments.
