Polaron-transformed quantum master equation (PQME) offers a unified framework to describe the dynamics of quantum systems in both limits of weak and strong couplings to environmental degrees of freedom. Thus, the PQME serves as an efficient method to describe charge and exciton transfer/transport dynamics for a broad range of parameters in condensed or complex environments. However, in some cases, the polaron transformation (PT) being employed in the formulation invokes an over-relaxation of…

A new, open-source software framework, QuantumDynamics.jl, provides implementations of a variety of perturbative and non-perturbative methods for simulating the dynamics of quantum systems and provides an integrated platform for experimentation, exploration, and method development.

Mechanism of Delocalization-Enhanced Exciton Transport in Disordered Organic Semiconductors.

Large exciton diffusion lengths generally improve the performance of organic semiconductor devices, because they enable energy to be transported farther during the exciton lifetime. However, the

Even a little delocalization produces large kinetic enhancements of charge-separation efficiency in organic photovoltaics

In organic photovoltaics, charges can separate efficiently even if their Coulomb attraction is an order of magnitude greater than the available thermal energy. Delocalization has been suggested to

Non-canonical distribution and non-equilibrium transport beyond weak system-bath coupling regime: A polaron transformation approach

The concept of polaron, emerged from condense matter physics, describes the dynamical interaction of moving particle with its surrounding bosonic modes. This concept has been developed into a useful

Delocalised kinetic Monte Carlo for simulating delocalisation-enhanced charge and exciton transport in disordered materials

This work presents the first three-dimensional model of partially delocalised charge and exciton transport in materials in the intermediate disorder regime, based on polaron-transformed Redfield theory but overcomes several computational roadblocks by mapping the quantum-mechanical techniques onto kinetic Monte Carlo.

Variational polaron transformation approach toward the calculation of thermopower in organic crystals

Based on the combination of the variational polaron transformation and the Green-Kubo formalism, a method toward the thermopower calculations in organic crystals is proposed, which covers a broad

Frozen-mode small polaron quantum master equation with variational bound for excitation energy transfer in molecular aggregates.

A "frozen-mode" SPQME is demonstrated that provides efficient and accurate simulations of EET dynamics of molecular systems in a broad parameter regime and is applied to models describing excitation energy transfer (EET) in molecular aggregates and comprehensively compared with the quasiadiabatic path integral method a well as the Redfield theory.

Low‐Temperature Properties of the Kondo Hamiltonian.

The low‐temperature Kondo problem is solved by extending a method used recently on the ground state to finite temperatures. In contrast to a result by Anderson, Yuval, and Hamann, the ground state

Expansion Formulas in Nonequilibrium Statistical Mechanics

Damping theoretical expansion formulas are given for basic equations of non-equilibrium systems: They are expressed in terms of “partial” and “ordered” cumulant functions. Validity and applicability
