Focus Area
Using our own ab-initio molecular dynamics program SHARC (Surface Hopping including ARbitrary Couplings), we are currently investigating the formation mechanism of Cyclobutane pyrimidine dimers, one of the major photolesions occurring in DNA. By considering intersystem crossings we can evaluate the role of triplet states in the underlying reaction.
