Welcome to the website of the Levine group at Michigan State University. We apply the methods of theoretical chemistry to understand the response of molecules and materials to light. Our goals are:
- To develop theoretical and computational tools which expand our ability to reliably model complex photophysical systems.
- To model and analyze the microscopic dynamics of electrons and nuclei in electronically excited molecules and materials.
- To collaborate with experimentalists and engineers to develop materials and devices with desirable properties for application in light emission, solar energy conversion, and other domains.
We are grateful to the following organizations for support:
