From quantum search to light harvesting - Dynamics in complex systems
Dr. Oliver Mülken (Physikalisches Institut, Univ. Freiburg): In diesem Vortrag soll der Bogen zwischen unterschiedlichsten physikalischen Prozessen geschlagen werden. Ein Extrem sind quantenmechanische Suchalgorithmen, wie sie u.U. für Quantencomputer verwandt werden können. Auf der anderen Seite steht der hocheffiziente Energietransport bei der Photosynthese, bei dem momentan debattiert wird, in wie weit kohärente Dynamik verantwortlich für die hohe Effizienz ist. Beide Prozesse lassen sic
