Important Contributions:

  • Development of electronic-structure (response) methods of increasing and controlled accuracy for molecular properties and spectroscopy, in particular: coupled cluster (CC) approaches for X-ray spectroscopy, including near-edge absorption (XAS), circular dichroism (XCD), emission (XES), photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), resonant inelastic x-ray scattering (RIXS), two-photon x-ray absorption (XTPA), and their excited-state and time-resolved variants, TR-XAS, TR-XPS, TR-XCD; RASPT2 methods for resonant and non-resonant Auger-Meitner spectroscopy and double-core ionization of atomic and molecular systems; RASPT2 and CC methodologies for (time-resolved) photoionization dynamical parameters; Damped Response Theory for CC wave-function ansätze for both UV-vis and X-ray related spectroscopic effects; (Gauge-invariant) response-based CC and TD-DFT approaches for Magnetic Circular Dichroism, Nuclear Spin Circular Dichroism, Magneto-Chiral Dichroism, Circularly Polarized Phosphorescence, Vibrational Circular Dichroism, Raman Scattering, Buckingham & Jones Birefringence
