October 16, 2017. Ignacio is in Erlangen visiting the group of Peter Hommelhoff at the Friedrich-Alexander University and giving a talk on “Laser control of electrons”. Thanks Peter, Tak and Christian for the hospitality!
October 9-13, 2017. Ignacio is in Bremen talking about laser-dressed materials and other deeply optoelectronic processes in the CECAM meeting “Charge carrier dynamics in nanostructures: optoelectronic and photo-stimulated processes”. What a terrific meeting!
September 25-29, 2017. Ignacio is in Cuernavaca, Mexico presenting the work of the group on electromechanical processes in junctions in the conference “Transport at the Nanoscale” at the Centro Internacional de Ciencias. Thanks Thomas Stegmann and Carmen Herrmann for the wonderful invitation!
August 28, 2017. Bing’s general but simple formula for decoherence times is now out in the Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters! As it turns out, the initial purity decay is Gaussian and the associated timescale is determined by initial-time fluctuations. From this general formula it follows that mixed quantum-classical methods like Ehrenfest dynamics can capture decoherence correctly provided the initial conditions are sampled from a Wigner distribution.

August 6-11, 2017. Bing, Wen, Antonio and Ignacio are in Hadley, MA attending the GRC on Quantum Control of Light Matter and presenting posters. One of the contributions of the group ¨Quantifying early-time decoherence dynamics through fluctuations¨ was upgraded to a hot topic talk!
July 17-20, 2017. Ignacio is in Telluride attending the workshop on ¨Nonequilibrium Phenomena,Nonadiabatic Dynamics and Spectroscopy¨ and presenting the work on the group on modeling of electromechanical spectroscopies in molecular junctions.
