Phase coherence in tight-binding models with nonrandom long-range hopping
The density of states, even for a perfectly ordered tight-binding model, can exhibit a tail-like feature at the top of the band, provided the hopping integral falls off in space slowly enough. We
Scaling and universality in the optics of disordered exciton chains.
It is demonstrated numerically that the joint probability distribution of exciton energies and transition dipole moments obeys a one-parameter scaling, originating from the fact that both the energy and the dipole moment are determined by the number of coherently bound molecules.
Coherent-potential-approximation study of excitonic absorption in orientationally disordered molecular aggregates
We study the dynamics of a single Frenkel exciton in a disordered molecular chain. The coherent-potential approximation is applied to the situation where the single-molecule excitation energies as
Quantum coherence and disorder-specific effects in simulations of 2D optical spectra of one-dimensional J-aggregates.
Time-resolved two-dimensional photon-echo spectra of linear J-aggregates containing four molecules per unit cell--a model system for a concentrated water solution of the pseudo-isocyanine dye--is theoretically considered and possibilities of probing quantum coherences, as well as performing quantum control via two-color 2D PE spectroscopy, are discussed.
Unraveling intra-aggregate structural disorder using single-molecule spectroscopy.
A Frenkel exciton model is exploited to show that the experimentally observed correlation of linewidths and other statistical properties of the single-aggregate spectra can be explained from small variations of the molecular orientations within individual aggregates.
Exchange narrowing of the J band of molecular dye aggregates.
A unified theory incorporating the two approaches is presented, which shows that the origins of the narrowing are different and features of both narrowing mechanisms are evident.


Zero-energy peak of the density of states and localization properties of a one-dimensional Frenkel exciton: Off-diagonal disorder
We study a one-dimensional Frenkel Hamiltonian with off-diagonal disorder, focusing our attention on the physical nature of the zero-energy peak of the density of states. The character of excitonic
Optical properties of disordered molecular aggregates: a numerical study
We present results of numerical simulations on optical properties of linear molecular aggregates with diagonal and off‐diagonal disorder. In contrast to previous studies, we introduce off‐diagonal
Excitonic line shapes of disordered solids
The optical absorption for a disordered one-dimensional excitonic solid has been studied by numerical methods. We have considered both Gaussian and binary energy fluctuations. Our results indicate
Optical line shapes of dynamically disordered ring aggregates
We study the absorption line shape caused by Frenkel excitons in one-dimensional ring-shaped molecular aggregates, such as circular light-harvesting systems, subjected to dynamic disorder with a
Numerical Experiments on the Absorption Lineshape of the Exciton under Lattice Vibrations. I. The Overall Lineshape.
A standardized formulation is introduced for the lineshape problem–the effect of lattice vibrations on the exciton absorption, and used in a Monte-Carlo calculation of the density of exciton states
