Here is the current version of the talk I will give this afternoon at the workshop in Germany on
Quantum efficiency: from biology to materials science.
I am really excited about this workshop since it involves people and topics that so strongly overlap with my interests.
I decided to talk less about the specifics of some of my own research and more about some of the general issues in the field and specifically how the spin-boson model gives us insight into the rates at which transitions occur between specific quantum states in complex molecular systems.
One thing I am still not clear on (convinced of) is:
does quantum coherence necessarily enhance the rate at which processes occur?
