The Advances in Chemical Physics series is dedicated to reviewing new and emerging topics as well as the latest developments in traditional areas of study in the field of chemical physics. Each volume features detailed comprehensive analyses coupled with individual points of view that integrate the many disciplines of science that are needed for a full understanding of chemical physics.
Volume 162 of Advances in Chemical Physics includes contributions from expert authors on:
- Electronic structure and dynamics of singlet fission
- Quantumness in coherent control
- Small–molecular–type organic solar cells
- Single molecule data analysis
- Chemistry with controlled ions
Reviews published in Advances in Chemical Physics are typically longer than those published in journals, providing the space needed for readers to fully grasp the topic: the fundamentals as well as the latest discoveries, applications, and emerging avenues of research. Extensive cross–referencing enables readers to explore the primary research studies underlying each topic.
