Chirality, Spin Coherence and Entanglement in Quantum Biology

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

Wasielewski will prepare several series of chiral DNA hairpins and use transient optical absorption and time-resolved electron paramagnetic resonance techniques to fully characterize how chirality affects the electron transfer rates and spin dynamics of photogenerated spin-correlated radical pairs within the hairpins. This will be an important test for the role of chirality in quantum biology.
