Quantum chemistry and technology
Quantum chemistry focuses on regimes where the principles of quantum mechanics, such as wave-particle duality and coherence, must be considered to accurately describe molecular systems. This includes the internal structure and dynamics of molecules, their interaction with electromagnetic radiation and intermolecular interactions ranging from bimolecular scattering processes to solid materials. In the second quantum revolution of recent years, these concepts are applied in a controlled manner to develop quantum technology for quantum information, sensing, metrology, and control of chemical processes. The field includes a wide variety of theoretical and experimental methods.
