Quantum effects in biology and organic materials: photosynthesis, solar cells and nanomachines

Talk by Winton Advanced Research Fellow, Alex Chin
When Mar 06, 2014
from 07:00 PM to 08:30 PM
Where Lloyd Room, Christ's College
Add event to calendar vCal


The surprisingly observation of sustained, room temperature quantum dynamics in molecular structures taken from photosynthetic organism has lead to renewed interdisciplinary interest in the possible roles of quantum mechanics in biological processes. This talk will discuss some of the new ideas in the emerging field of “Quantum Biology” and how these might be applied in man-made organic systems to create new and highly efficient (quantum) nanoscale devices.

The talk is free and open to all to attend, and will be followed by refreshments.  No registration is necessary.

This talk is part of the Darwin Society series.

Manipulation of Quantum Entangled Triplet Pairs

Jan 07, 2021

Researchers have uncovered a new technique to create and manipulate pairs of particle-like excitations in organic semiconductors that carry non-classical spin information across space, much like the entangled photon pairs in the famous Einstein-Podolsky-Roden “paradox”.

Machine learning algorithm helps in the search for new drugs
