Abstract
Decoherence effects induced by conical intersecting potential energy surfaces are studied employing the correlation-based von Neumann (CvN) entropy which provides a measure of the complexity of the underlying wavefunction. As a prototypical example, the S-0 -> S-2 excitation in pyrazine is investigated. The 24-dimensional wavepacket dynamics calculations presented utilize the multi-layer extension of the multi-configurational time-dependent Hartree (MCTDH) approach. An efficient numerical scheme is introduced which facilitates CvN entropy constrained wavepacket propagation within the multi-layer MCTDH approach. In unconstrained multi-layer MCTDH calculations, the CvN-entropy is found to provide a valuable analytical tool for studying the decoherence phenomena present. Investigating the CvN entropy after the S-0 -> S-2 excitation as a function of time, a clear separation of time scales is obtained. It can be related to the different dynamical phenomena present: the initial transfer from the upper (S-2) to the lower (S-1) adiabatic electronic states rapidly generates vast amounts of CvN-entropy, while the subsequent motion on the anharmonic lower adiabatic potential energy surface only yields a slow increase of the CvN-entropy. Employing CvN-entropy constrained calculations, the sensitivity of the autocorrelation function, the absorption spectrum, and the diabatic electronic population dynamics to complexity constraints is analyzed in detail.
