B06 Real time investigation of light harvesting processes in redox switching oligonuclear charge transfer metal complexes (Meyer, Techert)

In this project optical excitation processes and short range charge transfer in highly preorganized oligonuclear metal complexes – in particular in square and grid-like Fe complexes – will be investigated in real time with the long-term aim of controlling the efficiencies of multimetallic systems for light harvesting and energy storage in excited spin and electronic states. Reorganisation processes will be studied, utilizing time-resolved x-ray methods at various time scales (fs to ms).
