Excitation dynamics of strongly dissipative quantum systems

Jake Iles-Smith
Strong coupling between a quantum system and its many-body environment is becoming an increasingly important topic for many branches of physics. Numerous systems of experimental and technological relevance demonstrate strong system-environment coupling, leading to complex dynamical behaviour. This thesis is concerned with two particular examples of such systems, namely quantum dots (QDs) and excitonic energy transfer (EET) in molecular systems. Traditional quantum optics treatments are often insufficient to describe the transient, steady state, and optical...
