Dr. Xiaonan Ma (State Key Laboratory for Molecular Reaction Dynamics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing)
Xiaonan received his Ph.D. in the summer of 2011 from the Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, where he worked on femtosecond studies of ultrafast photoinduced intra- and intermolecular dynamics, including chromophore-chromophore couplings and ionic liquids. He joined our group at CAU Kiel for two years starting in February 2013 with a prestigious Alexander von Humboldt fellowship. His work plan includes femtosecond studies of the dynamics of excited-state intra- and intermolecular proton or hydrogen atom transfer reactions and coherent energy transfer involving exciton states in multichromophoric molecules. Both projects complement our activities in the CRC 667 "Function by Switching".
