Quantum chemistry, molecular dynamics, approximate density functional theory

The central theme of Irle's work is the quantum chemical study of complex systems. On the basis of approximate density functional theory (DFT) techniques, his group can conduct the routine, fully quantum chemical simulation of large molecular systems containing 1000's of atoms on timescales into the 10's of nanoseconds, and thus provide a theoretical means to understand and design efficient chemical synthesis in complex molecular environments and to characterize and create novel molecules for bio-related applications. In this Institute, he will mainly apply his density-functional tight-binding (DFTB) method for the understanding of ligand-protein interactions as well as the rational design of fluorescent molecules for bio-imaging, collaborating with virtually all members.
