Project summary

We seek to explore and control the geometry and connectivity required to support partially coherent quantum transport of exciton in quantum dot mesomaterials. This has a photsynthetic precedent, where organic complexes are able to preserve a measure of partially coherent character to exciton transport. Coherence is also thought to play an important role in organic photovoltaic materials, where state superposition resulting from Heisenberg uncertainty with respect to photon absorption.
