A series of various thienyl derivatives of pyrene were synthesized by Stille cross-coupling procedure. Their structures were characterized by 1H NMR, 13C NMR and elemental analysis. The spectroscopic characteristics were investigated by UV–vis absorption and fluorescence spectra. Based on quantum chemical calculations, the energy levels of investigated(More)
—We use a collection of Python programs for numerical simulation of liver perfusion. We have an application for semi-automatic generation of a finite element mesh of the human liver from computed tomography scans and for reconstruction of the liver vascular structure. When the real vascular trees can not be obtained from the CT data we generate artificial(More)
The interaction of exciton and charge transfer (CT) states plays a central role in photo-induced CT processes in chemistry, biology, and physics. In this work, we use a combination of two-dimensional electronic spectroscopy (2D-ES), pump-probe measurements, and quantum chemistry to investigate the ultrafast CT dynamics in a lutetium bisphthalocyanine dimer(More)
The paper deals with modeling the liver perfusion intended to improve quantitative analysis of the tissue scans provided by the contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT). For this purpose, we developed a model of dynamic transport of the contrast fluid through the hierarchies of the perfusion trees. Conceptually, computed time-space distributions of the(More)
We investigate the nature of the S* excited state in carotenoids by performing a series of pump-probe experiments with sub-20 fs time resolution on spirilloxanthin in a polymethyl-methacrylate matrix varying the sample temperature. Following photoexcitation, we observe sub-200 fs internal conversion of the bright S2 state into the lower-lying S1 and S*(More)
