Photochemistry and molecular photophysics have been highly active fields of research for more than half a century; however, during the last two decades synergistic advances in experimental technology and computational methodology have led to a renewed interest in understanding photochemistry and photophysics at the quantum level – photo-initiated quantum molecular dynamics. One of the grand challenges for the 21st century is to develop such a detailed understanding of energy flow in molecules, following the absorption of a photon, that we can begin to develop the knowledge and tools to control photochemistry. Photo-initiated Quantum Molecular Dynamics: Faraday Discussion 163 will involve spectroscopy and dynamics, experiment and theory, with themes including:
- Single molecules: photochemistry and photophysics in isolated molecular systems
- Extended systems: photochemistry and photophysics of chromophores in proteins, solution or clusters
- Controlling molecular dynamics: controlling photochemistry using sequences of light pulses, shaped light pulses or bond selection prior to photoexcitation
- Applications of molecular dynamics to global challenges: photovoltaic cells, photodynamic therapy, imaging.

Faraday Discussions are a long-established series of meetings which provide a unique international platform for the exchange of views and newly acquired results in developing areas of physical chemistry, biophysical chemistry and chemical physics. The Discussion is a dynamic forum for developing and exchanging exciting new ideas, and both the papers and discussion will be published in a final printed volume. The latest Impact Factor is 5.0.
We invite you to submit an abstract for an oral presentation by the 17th August to firstname.lastname@example.org adding ‘FD163 abstract’ in the subject line. We hope to see you at this exciting Faraday Discussion meeting next year.
Faraday Discussions is a sister journal to Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics (PCCP). PCCP brings you content of the highest quality in physical chemistry, chemical physics and biophysical chemistry. With high-impact research, and a truly international readership, PCCP is the ideal place to publish. We invite you to submit your research to PCCP today.
