Abstract: In my research group at RWTH Aachen University, we aim for the predictive simulation of photophysical and photochemical processes using a multi-level quantum chemical setup. Here, sampling of minimum and state intersection geometries using semiempirical electronic structure theory is followed-up with calculations at higher levels of theory. From this workflow, we can obtain mechanistic insight into photochemical reactions and the origins of experimentally observed fluorescence quantum yields.
