Time Resolved and Charge Density - In Honor of Philip Coppens

 

The ability to follow the 3D structural dynamics of photochemical processes in real time will revolutionize our understanding of photochemistry.  The advancement of instrumentation capabilities and new light source LCLS, an x-ray free electron Laser, provides us with new tools and techniques to conduct real time photochemistry research.  It also opens up new scientific opportunities in structural dynamic studies.  This session reviewed current and future research prospects, in honor of Professor Philip Coppens' vision and leadership in this pioneering research area.

 

Session Chairs: Peter Lee, Yu-Sheng Chen, and Jason Benedict
