Three key ideas for organic photonics and electronics

• Electronic correlations can significantly modify the relative energy of excited electronic states, especially near transition states.
• Due to conical intersections between potential energy surfaces non-adiabatic processes can lead to ultrafast internal conversion (transitions between different electronic states).
• The environment has a significant effect on the rate of transitions between quantum states.
