The transfer of excitation energy between chromophores is an important process in biology and chemistry, but our understanding of how excitation energy transfer occurs at the molecular level is still rather limited and based upon empirical theories, such as Förster and Dexter theory that cannot be used to design new systems. The aim of this project therefore is to develop an alternative theoretical framework, based on computation, that describes these processes in terms of molecular dynamics on coupled electronic potential energy surfaces.
