We discuss recent progress towards the establishment of important structure-property-function relationships in eumelanins – key functional bio-macromolecular systems responsible for photo-protection and immune response in humans, and implicated in the development of melanoma skin cancer. We focus on the link between eumelanin's secondary structure and(More)
We present a detailed investigation of static dipole polarizability of lithium clusters containing up to 22 atoms. We first build a database of lithium clusters by optimizing several candidate structures for the ground state geometry for each size. The full polarizability tensor is determined for about 5-6 isomers of each cluster size using the finite-field(More)
