The Quantum Biology and Computational Physics research group at the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg (Germany) is headed by Prof. Dr. Ilia Solov'yov. The group was originally established in October 2013 at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU) and has relocated to Germany in 2019.
Our research interests cover a broad range of questions on theory of biomolecules and smart inorganic materials. Of particular interest are those biological processes that trigger energy conversion into forms that are usable for chemical transformations and are quantum mechanical in nature. Such processes involve chemical reactions, light absorption, formation of excited electronic states, transfer of excitation energy, and transfer of electrons and protons in chemical processes. Equally challenging are problems in nanophysics which focus on potential applications in nanotechnology, material science and medicine.
