Simulering av Relaxationsprocesser inom Fluoresens, EPR och NMR Spektroskopi (Swedish)
Relaxation models are developed using numerical solutions of the Stochastic Liouville Equation of motion. Simplified descriptions such as the stochastic master equation is described in the context of fluorescence depolarisation experiments. Redfield theory is used in order to describe NMR relaxation in bicontinuous phases. The stochastic fluctuations in the relaxation models are accounted for using Brownian Dynamics simulation technique. A novel approach to quantitatively analyse fluorescence depolarisation experiments and to determine intramolecular distances is presented. A new Brownian Dynamics simulation technique is developed in order to characterize translational diffusion along the water lipid interface of bicontinuous cubic phases.
