    Efficient calculations of a large number of highly excited states for multiconfigurational wavefunctions2019In: Journal of Computational Chemistry, ISSN 0192-8651, E-ISSN 1096-987X, Vol. 40, no 19, p. 1789-1799Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Electronically excited states play important roles in many chemical reactions and spectroscopic techniques. In quantum chemistry, a common technique to solve excited states is the multiroot Davidson algorithm, but it is not designed for processes like X-ray spectroscopy that involves hundreds of highly excited states. We show how the use of a restricted active space wavefunction together with a projection operator to remove low-lying electronic states offers an efficient way to reach single and double-core-hole states. Additionally, several improvements to the stability and efficiency of the configuration interaction (CI) algorithm for a large number of states are suggested. When applied to a series of transition metal complexes the new CI algorithm does not only resolve divergence issues but also leads to typical reduction in computational time by 70%, with the largest savings for small molecules and large active spaces. Together, the projection operator and the improved CI algorithm now make it possible to simulate a wide range of single- and two-photon spectroscopies.

    Chemiexcitation without the Peroxide Bond?: Replacing oxygen with other heteroatoms2019In: ChemPhotoChem, ISSN 2367-0932, Vol. 3, no 9, p. 957-967Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Chemiexcitation is the population of electronic excited states from the electronic ground state via radiationless non-adiabatic transitions upon thermal activation. The subsequent emission of the excess of energy in the form of light is called chemiluminescence or bioluminescence when occurring in living organisms. Key intermediates in these reactions have been shown to contain a high-energy (often cyclic) peroxide which decomposes. The simplest molecules, 1,2-dioxetane and 1,2-dioxetanone, have thus been used extensively both theoretically and experimentally as model systems to understand the underlying mechanisms of chemiexcitation. An outstanding question remains whether the peroxide bond is a necessity and whether equivalent processes could happen in other simple molecules not containing an OO bond. In the present work, the decomposition reactions of four analogs of 1,2-dioxetane not containing a peroxide bond, the 1,2-oxazetidine anion, the 1,2-diazetidine anion, (neutral) 1,2-oxazetidine and 1,2-dithietane, have been studied theoretically using ab initio multicongurational methods. In particular, the reaction energy barriers and spin-orbit coupling strengths were calculated; the electronic degeneracy was studied and compared to the case of 1,2-dioxetane to assess the potentiality of chemiexcitation in the analog molecules.

    How machine learning can assist the interpretation of ab initio molecular dynamics simulations and conceptual understanding of chemistry2019In: Chemical Science, ISSN 2041-6520, Vol. 10, no 8, p. 2298-2307Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Molecular dynamics simulations are often key to the understanding of the mechanism, rate and yield of chemical reactions. One current challenge is the in-depth analysis of the large amount of data produced by the simulations, in order to produce valuable insight and general trends. In the present study, we propose to employ recent machine learning analysis tools to extract relevant information from simulation data without a priori knowledge on chemical reactions. This is demonstrated by training machine learning models to predict directly a specific outcome quantity of ab initio molecular dynamics simulations - the timescale of the decomposition of 1,2-dioxetane. The machine learning models accurately reproduce the dissociation time of the compound. Keeping the aim of gaining physical insight, it is demonstrated that, in order to make accurate predictions, the models evidence empirical rules that are, today, part of the common chemical knowledge. This opens the way for conceptual breakthroughs in chemistry where machine analysis would provide a source of inspiration to humans.

    The Ehrenfest method with fully quantum nuclear motion (Qu-Eh): Application to charge migration in radical cations2018In: Journal of Chemical Physics, ISSN 0021-9606, E-ISSN 1089-7690, Vol. 149, no 9, article id 094108Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    An algorithm is described for quantum dynamics where an Ehrenfest potential is combined with fully quantum nuclear motion (Quantum-Ehrenfest, Qu-Eh). The method is related to the single-set variational multi-configuration Gaussian approach (vMCG) but has the advantage that only a single quantum chemistry computation is required at each time step since there is only a single time-dependent potential surface. Also shown is the close relationship to the “exact factorization method.” The quantum Ehrenfest method is compared with vMCG for study of electron dynamics in a modified bismethylene-adamantane cation system. Illustrative examples of electron-nuclear dynamics are presented for a distorted allene system and for HCCI+ where one has a degenerate Π system.

    Charge migration engineered by localisation: electron-nuclear dynamics in polyenes and glycine2018In: Molecular Physics, ISSN 0026-8976, E-ISSN 1362-3028, Vol. 116, no 19-20, p. 2474-2489Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We demonstrate that charge migration can be ‘engineered’ in arbitrary molecular systems if a single localised orbital – that diabatically follows nuclear displacements – is ionised. Specifically, we describe the use of natural bonding orbitals in Complete Active Space Configuration Interaction (CASCI) calculations to form cationic states with localised charge, providing consistently well-defined initial conditions across a zero point energy vibrational ensemble of molecular geometries. In Ehrenfest dynamics simulations following localised ionisation of -electrons in model polyenes (hexatriene and decapentaene) and -electrons in glycine, oscillatory charge migration can be observed for several femtoseconds before dephasing. Including nuclear motion leads to slower dephasing compared to fixed-geometry electron-only dynamics results. For future work, we discuss the possibility of designing laser pulses that would lead to charge migration that is experimentally observable, based on the proposed diabatic orbital approach.

    Auger Electron and Photoabsorption Spectra of Glycine in the Vicinity of the Oxygen K-edge Measured with an X-FEL2015In: Journal of Physics B: Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics, ISSN 0953-4075, E-ISSN 1361-6455, Vol. 48, no 23, article id 234004Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We report the first measurement of the near oxygen K-edge auger spectrum of the glycine molecule. Our work employed an x-ray free electron laser as the photon source operated with input photon energies tunable between 527 and 547 eV. Complete electron spectra were recorded at each photon energy in the tuning range, revealing resonant and non-resonant auger structures. Finally ab initio theoretical predictions are compared with the measured above the edge auger spectrum and an assignment of auger decay channels is performed.

    Accurate prediction of X-ray pulse properties from a free-electron laser using machine learning2017In: Nature Communications, ISSN 2041-1723, E-ISSN 2041-1723, Vol. 8, article id 15461Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Free-electron lasers providing ultra-short high-brightness pulses of X-ray radiation have great potential for a wide impact on science, and are a critical element for unravelling the structural dynamics of matter. To fully harness this potential, we must accurately know the X-ray properties: intensity, spectrum and temporal profile. Owing to the inherent fluctuations in free-electron lasers, this mandates a full characterization of the properties for each and every pulse. While diagnostics of these properties exist, they are often invasive and many cannot operate at a high-repetition rate. Here, we present a technique for circumventing this limitation. Employing a machine learning strategy, we can accurately predict X-ray properties for every shot using only parameters that are easily recorded at high-repetition rate, by training a model on a small set of fully diagnosed pulses. This opens the door to fully realizing the promise of next-generation high-repetition rate X-ray lasers.

    Using quantum dynamics simulations to follow the competition between charge migration and charge transfer in polyatomic molecules2017In: Chemical Physics, ISSN 0301-0104, E-ISSN 1873-4421, Vol. 482, p. 52-63Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Recent work, particularly by Cederbaum and co-workers, has identified the phenomenon of charge migration, whereby charge flow occurs over a static molecular framework after the creation of an electronic wavepacket. In a real molecule, this charge migration competes with charge transfer, whereby the nuclear motion also results in the re-distribution of charge. To study this competition, quantum dynamics simulations need to be performed. To break the exponential scaling of standard grid-based algorithms, approximate methods need to be developed that are efficient yet able to follow the coupled electronic-nuclear motion of these systems. Using a simple model Hamiltonian based on the ionisation of the allene molecule, the performance of different methods based on Gaussian Wavepackets is demonstrated.

    Electron Dynamics upon Ionization of Polyatomic Molecules: Coupling to Quantum Nuclear Motion and Decoherence2017In: Physical Review Letters, ISSN 0031-9007, E-ISSN 1079-7114, Vol. 118, no 8, article id 083001Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Knowledge about the electronic motion in molecules is essential for our understanding of chemical reactions and biological processes. The advent of attosecond techniques opens up the possibility to induce electronic motion, observe it in real time, and potentially steer it. A fundamental question remains the factors influencing electronic decoherence and the role played by nuclear motion in this process. Here, we simulate the dynamics upon ionization of the polyatomic molecules paraxylene and modified bismethylene-adamantane, with a quantum mechanical treatment of both electron and nuclear dynamics using the direct dynamics variational multiconfigurational Gaussian method. Our simulations give new important physical insights about the expected decoherence process. We have shown that the decoherence of electron dynamics happens on the time scale of a few femtoseconds, with the interplay of different mechanisms: the dephasing is responsible for the fast decoherence while the nuclear overlap decay may actually help maintain it and is responsible for small revivals.

    Dynamical Insights into the Decomposition of 1,2-Dioxetane2017In: Journal of Chemical Theory and Computation, ISSN 1549-9618, E-ISSN 1549-9626, Vol. 13, no 6, p. 2448-2457Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Chemiluminescence in 1,2-dioxetane occurs through a thermally activated decomposition reaction into two formaldehyde molecules. Both ground-state and nonadiabatic dynamics (including singlet excited states) of the decomposition reaction have been simulated, starting from the first O–O bond-breaking transition structure. The ground-state dissociation occurs between t = 30 fs and t = 140 fs. The so-called entropic trap leads to frustrated dissociations, postponing the decomposition reaction. Specific geometrical conditions are necessary for the trajectories to escape from the entropic trap and for dissociation to be possible. The singlet excited states participate as well in the trapping of the molecule: dissociation including the nonadiabatic transitions to singlet excited states now occurs from t = 30 fs to t = 250 fs and later. Specific regions of the seam of the So/S1 conical intersections that would "retain" the molecule for longer on the excited state have been identified.

    How Do Methyl Groups Enhance the Triplet Chemiexcitation Yield of Dioxetane?2017In: Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters, ISSN 1948-7185, E-ISSN 1948-7185, Vol. 8, no 16, p. 3790-3794Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Chemiluminescence is the emission of light as a result of a nonadiabatic chemical reaction. The present work is concerned with understanding the yield of chemiluminescence, in particular how it dramatically increases upon methylation of 1,2-dioxetane. Both ground-state and nonadiabatic dynamics (including singlet excited states) of the decomposition reaction of various methyl-substituted dioxetanes have been simulated. Methyl-substitution leads to a significant increase in the dissociation time scale. The rotation around the O-C-C-O dihedral angle is slowed; thus, the molecular system stays longer in the "entropic trap" region. A simple kinetic model is proposed to explain how this leads to a higher chemiluminescence yield. These results have important implications for the design of efficient chemiluminescent systems in medical, environmental, and industrial applications.

    Chemi- and Bioluminescence of Cyclic Peroxides2018In: Chemical Reviews, ISSN 0009-2665, E-ISSN 1520-6890, Vol. 118, no 15, p. 6927-6974Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Bioluminescence is a phenomenon that has fascinated mankind for centuries. Today the phenomenon and its sibling, chemiluminescence, have impacted society with a number of useful applications in fields like analytical chemistry and medicine, just to mention two. In this review, a molecular-orbital perspective is adopted to explain the chemistry behind chemiexcitation in both chemi- and bioluminescence. First, the uncatalyzed thermal dissociation of 1,2-dioxetane is presented and analyzed to explain, for example, the preference for triplet excited product states and increased yield with larger nonreactive substituents. The catalyzed fragmentation reaction and related details are then exemplified with substituted 1,2-dioxetanone species. In particular, the preference for singlet excited product states in that case is explained. The review also examines the diversity of specific solutions both in Nature and in artificial systems and the difficulties in identifying the emitting species and unraveling the color modulation process. The related subject of excited-state chemistry without light absorption is finally discussed. The content of this review should be an inspiration to human design of new molecular systems expressing unique light-emitting properties. An appendix describing the state-of-the-art experimental and theoretical methods used to study the phenomena serves as a complement.

    Transition dynamics in two-photon ionisation2017In: Journal of optics, ISSN 0150-536X, Vol. 19, no 11, article id 114011Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We review various aspects of photoemission dynamics in the case of two-photon ionisation. We first recall the definition of a transition phase specific to two-photon transitions. Numerical experiments on model atoms are used to show how the group delay associated with the transition phase is actually representative of the early dynamics of the detected photoelectron wave packets. Then we address the question of measuring these transition delays using a standard interferometric technique of experimental attosecond physics, so-called rabbit . Finally, we outline different reinterpretations of rabbit giving access to the more fundamental scattering dynamics affecting any photoemission processes.
