Welcome to the website of the research group of Benjamin G. Levine in the Chemistry Department of Michigan State University. We develop and apply methods in theoretical and computational chemistry to understand the behavior of electronically excited molecules and materials. Our goals are:
- To develop theoretical and computational tools which expand our ability to reliably model complex photophysical systems.
- To model and analyze the microscopic dynamics of electrons and nuclei in electronically excited molecules and materials.
- To collaborate with experimentalists and engineers to understand the response of materials to light and to design materials with desirable properties for application in light emission, solar energy conversion, and other domains.
We are grateful to the following organizations for support:
