Unveiling the quantum dance: Experiments reveal nexus of vibrational and electronic dynamics

July 25, 2023

Lin Chen, along with a team of researchers from Argonne National Laboratory, North Carolina State University and University of Washington, demonstrated the breakdown of this assumption on very fast time scales, revealing a close relationship between the dynamics of nuclei and electrons. 

Insight from the experiments could influence the design of molecules useful for solar cells, energy production, quantum information science and even medical treatments that rely on light-matter interactions.
