Ballistic charge transport through bio-molecules in a dissipative environment

Daria Brisker-Klaiman

Theoretical and Computational Chemistry, Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing, Ruprecht-Karls Universität Heidelberg

The question whether dissipative bio-molecular systems can support efficient coherent (phase-conserving) charge transport is raised again following recent experiments onelectron-energy transfer in bio-molecules. We formulate conditions under which the current due to coherent ballistic resonant charge transport through DNA molecular junctions can be measured in spite of coupling to a dissipative environment.

Brief Bio:

Daria graduated with B.A in Biochemistry in 2004 from the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology. Both her M.Sc (in Chemistry, graduated cum laude in 2007) and her PhD (graduated in 2012) were done under the supervision of Prof. Uri Peskin in the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology. The title of her PhD thesis is "Coherence, Dissipation and Bond Dissociation in Charge Transport through Molecular Bridges". Daria started a Post-Doctoral fellowship at the Heidelberg University in January 2012 with Prof. Andreas Dreuw. She received a number of awards among them the Minerva fellowship for a post-doctoral fellow (2012), the Wolf foundation prize (2008), and the Israel Chemical Society award for an excellent graduate student (2009).
