About Elad Harel's Work

A grand challenge of chemistry is to understand how the properties of molecules emerge from the complex correlations of their quantum states. We have developed high-dimensionality and highly nonlinear optical methods to map the correlations between quantum states in condensed-phase chemical and biological systems ranging from conjugated organic molecules, semiconductor nanostructures, and pigment-protein complexes. Our ongoing efforts include directly mapping non-equilibrium excited-state dynamics in time and space on the nanometer length scale to understand how the environment mediates energy transfer and chemical transduction in living and bio-inspired systems.
