Modeling of Transient Absorption Spectra in Exciton Charge-Transfer Systems
- Time-resolved spectroscopy provides the main tool for analyzing the dynamics of excitonic energy transfer in light-harvesting complexes. To infer time-scales and effective coupling parameters from experimental data requires to develop numerical exact theoretical models. The finite duration of the laser-molecule interactions and the reorganization process during the exciton migration affect the location and strength of spectroscopic signals. We show that the non-perturbative hierarchical equations of motion (HEOM) method captures these processes in a model exciton system, including the charge transfer state.
