Award Description: The goal of this proposal is to measure electronic and nuclear couplings during photoinduced chemical processes in solution using femtosecond multidimensional spectroscopies. A series of infrared and visible fields will excite coupled vibrational and electronic coordinates in biological photoreceptors such as the photoactive yellow protein and map their interactions during the course of the photocycle. The results from this study will allow us to understand how light energy is transformed into mechanical and chemical energy on the ultrafast timescale. Undergraduate and graduate students will receive training in state-of-the-art optical femtosecond systems. I will continue to mentor female graduate students at the University of Washington. Undergraduate p-chem curriculum will be reflect the current problems in biophysics. Graduate quantum mechanics class will incorporate concepts of statistical mechanics to understand chemical reaction dynamics in the condensed phase.
