We show that the dynamics of (vertical) Franck-Condon excitations in the regime where Holstein-coupled vibrational modes mix strongly with electronic degrees of freedom sharply contrasts with the known self-localized behavior of vibrationally relaxed excitations. Instead, the strongly coupled modes are found to periodically induce resonances between interacting electronic sites, during which effective excitation transfer occurs, allowing Franck-Condon excitations to attain substantial mean…

Charge density wave breakdown in a heterostructure with electron-phonon coupling

Understanding the influence of vibrational degrees of freedom on transport through a heterostructure poses considerable theoretical and numerical challenges. In this work, we use the density-matrix

Time-dependent density matrix renormalization group quantum dynamics for realistic chemical systems.

Two typical chemical systems of internal conversion and singlet fission are investigated and a comparison shows that the tDMRG methods can describe the full quantum dynamics in large chemical systems accurately and efficiently.

Large-Scale Quantum Dynamics with Matrix Product States.

The time-dependent density matrix renormalization group (TD-DMRG) is employed which parametrizes the time- dependent wave function as a matrix product state and leads to a set of coupled equations that can be integrated exactly.

Vibronic exciton theory of singlet fission. III. How vibronic coupling and thermodynamics promote rapid triplet generation in pentacene crystals.

The vibronic exciton theory introduced in previous work is extended to study singlet fission dynamics, in particular addressing recent indications of the importance of vibronic coupling, indicating that this factor can both enhance and suppress fission depending on its interplay with vibronic resonance and thermodynamics.

Matrix product state formulation of the multiconfiguration time-dependent Hartree theory.

A matrix product state formulation of the multiconfiguration time-dependent Hartree (MPS-MCTDH) theory is presented and the efficiency and convergence of the MPS approximation to the MCTDH are demonstrated by quantum dynamics simulations of extended excitonic molecular systems.

Dynamics of a One-Dimensional Holstein Polaron with the Hierarchical Equations of Motion Approach.

It is revealed that strong exciton phonon coupling leads to excitonic localization, while a large exciton transfer integral facilitates exciton transport and temperature effects on exciton scattering have also been examined.

Effect of high-frequency modes on singlet fission dynamics.

It is demonstrated that fission dynamics strongly depends on the frequency of the intramolecular vibrational mode, and the effect of two vibrational modes on fissions dynamics is examined.

Vibronic exciton theory of singlet fission. I. Linear absorption and the anatomy of the correlated triplet pair state.

This work forms a model in which both electronic and vibrational degrees of freedom are treated microscopically and non-perturbatively, and uses pentacene as a prototypical material for singlet fission, and subjects the theory to comparison with measurements on polarization-resolved absorption of single crystals.

Evidence for Singlet Fission Driven by Vibronic Coherence in Crystalline Tetracene.

Four intramolecular modes in the range of 1400-1600 cm-1, which are nearly resonant with the single-exciton/multiexciton energy gap, appear to play a key role and are almost entirely of "Holstein" type, modulating the site energies rather than the intersite couplings.

The data reveal the crucial role of vibrational degrees of freedom coupled to electronic excitations that facilitate the mixing of multiexcitonic states with singlet excitons and show how the formation of vibronic manifolds with a high density of states facilitates fast and efficient electronic processes in molecular systems.
