- State-of-the-Art Summary
Advances of time-resolved experimental techniques, needed for a detailed understanding of charge carrier dynamics as they occur in real time, require matching progress in theoretical approaches. Applications to novel, emerging nanoscale materials, which ultimately lead to faster, more efficient and miniaturized devices, pose multiple theoretical challenges. Modeling time-resolved experimental data becomes a major goal of a theorist.
The proposed workshop became a forum to brainstorm ideas about solutions to important computational problems, and identify new directions for time-dependant electronic structure method development and challenging applications. In this way, we have been able to create an exchange mechanism to unite a core of developers in an interactive environment, in order to initiate design of a new generation software tools for quantum modelling of realistic complex systems and nanostructures in electronic ground and excited states. The delivery of this technology to a broad community will facilitate breakthroughs on high-impact materials science problems.
