Circular dichroism in the photoionization and decay spectra of randomly-oriented and fixed-in-space chiral molecules

The C1 project proposes a comprehensive theoretical investigation of circular dichroism in the one-photon inner-shell ionization, fragmentation, excitation and decay, as well as in the multiphoton and tunnel outer-shell ionization of the partially and fully spatially-oriented chiral molecules. It suggests developments of reliable theoretical approaches for the quantitative description of angle- and time-resolved experiments with chiral molecules. Together with the experiments planned in this CRC, it aims at qualitative understanding, quantitative characterization, and systematic quantification of advanced observables.
